INWDC Activities
short view of the shortage

RN employment in hospitals has increased by 243,000 nurses – largest increase in 30 years!

  • Reasons
    • RNs delaying retirement
    • RNs re-entering workforce due to economy
    • RNs working more hours (part time staff)
    • Competitive new graduate market
Short View of the Shortage

(P. Buerhaus & V. Potter, The Future of the Nursing Workforce in the United States; New Data, New Trends & New Implications 2009)

long view of the shortage

There is and will continue to be a nursing shortage

  • 55% of nurses surveyed responded intention to retire between 2011 and 2020
  • The need is anticipated to exceed demand beginning 2015
  • By 2025 we will need to have increased enrollments by 40% in order to meet the projected deficit
Long View of the Shortage

(P. Buerhaus & V. Potter, The Future of the Nursing Workforce in the United States; New Data, New Trends & New Implications 2009)

indiana s nursing pipeline

Over 2,600 qualified applicants not admitted to nursing programs in 2009 (ASN/BSN)

  • Over 2,600 qualified applicants not admitted to nursing programs in 2008 (ASN/BSN)
  • We admitted 2,045 new ASN and 2,671 new BSN students in 2009
  • We graduated 1,749 ASN and 1,635 BSN in 2009
Indiana’s Nursing Pipeline
the bottleneck qualified nurse educators

<8% of Indiana’s RN workforce hold a minimum of a masters degree

  • 3.6% of Indiana’s RN workforce are employed in schools of nursing
  • In the next 10 years 61% of currently employed full time nurse faculty have or will reach the retirement age
The BottleneckQualified Nurse Educators
today s challenges

Not enough qualified faculty to fill faculty positions

    • Fall 2009 Vacancies
      • 38 Full time positions
      • 8 Part time positions
    • Fall 2010 Projected Vacancies
      • 54 Full time positions
      • 19 Part time positions
  • Lack of faculty positions
  • Lack of clinical site availability (46% of respondents)
Today’s Challenges
proposed actions to increase the number of nurse educators

Address salary inequity issues

      • Nursing educator salaries are usually 25 to 100% less than that of advanced practice nurses or chief nursing officers
  • Strategies to support nurses returning to graduate programs
      • Cost of education ranges from $25,000 - $50,000
      • Often leave or are absent from a $60,000-$80,000 position
  • Incentives to encourage younger nurses to pursue the nurse educator role
      • Approximately 34% of Indiana’s full-time nurse educators are 56 years and older
      • Approximately 1% of Indiana’s full-time nurse educators are 30 years and under
Proposed Actions to Increase the Number of Nurse Educators
next steps

Must find ways to fund and support the activities of INWDC

        • Data collection and dissemination—education, supply, demand
  • Inform and support legislation at the state and national levels related to nursing workforce issues
        • Important work of the RWJ sponsored work of the IOM
  • Engage all regions of the state in speaking as a strong unified voice regarding the nurse faculty shortage issue
  • Continue to communicate the issues and build partnerships across the state and nation
Next Steps
what will it take

Investment in quality educational graduate and undergraduate programs and faculty

  • Enticing the brightest and best within and outside of the state into a nursing career
  • Healthcare institutions that promote and support the education and advancement of nursing practice
  • Action plans for succession of an aging nursing workforce
  • Partnerships that are actively engaged in the education of nurses
  • Statewide reputation for high standards of safe and effective patient care
