Presentation Transcript

  1. Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Strategies to Increase the Number of Initial Licensure Registered Nurses and Nursing Faculty January 29, 2009

  2. Levels of Nursing Education • Diploma, ADN, BSN (92% of all nurses) - produce a generalist, “initial licensure” • Master’s level (7%) - produce a specialist (e.g. APN, educator) • Doctoral level (less than 1%) - produce a researcher/educator (Ph.D.) and an advanced specialist (DNP)

  3. Texas will need to dramatically increase the number of ADN, BSN graduates by 2020

  4. Challenges for ADN, BSN Programs • Establishing new faculty positions and replacing retiring faculty • Increasing graduation rates of nursing students (currently 69% statewide) • Sustaining increases in new graduates from one year to the next

  5. MSN-nurse educator graduates represent 9.5% of all master’s level graduates

  6. In 2008, first-year DNP enrollments exceeded first-year Ph.D. enrollments

  7. Recommendations • Produce more ADN and BSN graduates - set institutional targets for number of graduates - create financial incentives for improving graduation rates • Produce more nursing faculty - fund existing loan repayment program - increase funding and pay stipends for future nurse educators through existing Professional Nursing Shortage Reduction Program
