Sharing Nursing Faculty Between Hospitals and Schools of Nursing

Texas currently needs 28,000 RNs to meet the national ratio of nurse to population criteria. The Gulf Coast area, which includes the Houston, Texas Medical Center with 6,000 patient beds, has set a goal of doubling the current number of 800 entry-level graduates per year. The business community and the health care community have teamed together to develop a comprehensive plan to move toward both a long and short term solution to the problem of attracting potential students. Because the shortage of nursing school faculty was a major factor limiting enrollment expansion, the hospitals “loaned” nurses qualified to teach to the 13 nursing schools in the area. A total of 65 individuals employed by 19 different hospitals donated 12,000 hours of teaching over the fall and spring semesters of 2001-2002. As a result of the collaborative program, area nursing schools were able to expand enrollment by 163 students in the first year.
