Abstract:
Engaging Future Generations in the Vision for Global Nursing: A Nurse Recruitment Strategy
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Jeffers, Brenda
P.I. Institution Name:Illinois State University
Recent trends indicate grave concerns about declining enrollment in nursing programs, aging practicing nurses, the rising demand for nurses, and the need for nurses to better reflect the diverse population for whom it serves. Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University has responded to these challenges by pursuing an adopt-a-school model. The targeted elementary school for the program is Irving Elementary, located in Bloomington, Illinois. Irving is a school of high-density minority and disadvantaged student population. Total student population is 427 students enrolled in grades K-5. Demographics indicate that 44.1% of the student population consists of minority students and 68.1% consists of disadvantaged students. The purpose of this program is to engage nursing students and faculty members in serving as nurse role models for elementary students, providing educational information about careers in nursing to students and parents, and meeting select health care education and needs of students. Objectives include provision of; structured and unstructured interactions with elementary students and staff that demonstrate support of health care needs; structured educational sessions for students and parents that focus on illness prevention and health promotion; educational sessions focused on increasing understanding of the role of nurses, the educational preparation necessary to become a nurse, and information related to financial support for educational preparation; structured interdisciplinary health education sessions with students, school staff, and parents; and facilitation of health learning teams of elementary students and older persons residing in a local long-term care facility.
