Nursing Education Task Force
An adequate supply of registered nurses is essential to achieving quality, accessible health care for the nation’s citizens. Georgia, along with the rest of the United States, is facing increasing shortages of registered nurses. The Nursing Education Task Force (NETF) was appointed by Senior Vice Chancellor Dan Rahn in August 2006 to study the current nurse education infrastructure and make recommendations to address the nursing shortage in Georgia. Task Force members represent USG institutions and other key stakeholders. The Task Force members are committed to studying and making recommendations to the University System of Georgia for improving nursing education in Georgia. Our team of leaders in nursing education bring their expertise and passion for nursing as we work together to develop plans for increasing the number of new nurses prepared by the USG. We welcome you to explore our website. Please contact us if you would like more information about our work or have recommendations for improving nursing education at USG institutions.
