Nursing Education Task Force
The Nursing Education Task Force is charged to:
- Verify appropriate targets to meet projected need for ADN and BSN nurses
- Recommend strategies to increase the number of qualified graduates at each degree level
- Recommend new resources needed
- Recommend ongoing data/information needs to monitor supply and demand of both students and faculty and identify factors contributing to career satisfaction and dissatisfaction of graduates who become nurses and nursing faculty.
The primary goal of the NETF is to increase by 50% the number of new nurses prepared in the USG by 2010, from 1,726 to approximately 2,700, through growth and efficiencies.
