Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Background: There is a growing nursing shortage in the United States. Our nursing education programs are bottlenecked in their ability to admit and educate qualified applicants. Nursing education programs do not have enough classroom faculty, clinical faculty, or clinical experience infrastructure and sites to educate all the qualified applicants who want to become nurses. X In 2007, our States nursing education programs turned away over 4,000 qualified applicants due to insufficient program capacity X More than 50% of faculty at most of our nursing schools/colleges are eligible to retire today Objectives: 1) Provide a pathway for BSN prepared nurses to educate students in an associate degree nursing program 2) Increase the number of new nursing clinical faculty 3) Increase the admission of qualified applicants into a nursing program Results: 1. BSN prepared RNs were mentored as Associate Degree program (ADN) clinical faculty 2. The number of new clinical faculty increased for a local ADN program 3. BSN prepared nurses were provided the opportunity to educate and mentor ADN students. 4. The community college accepted 25% more students into their program 5. All BSN mentored clinical faculty have continued teaching the ADN program nursing students and have enrolled in MSN educational programs Conclusion: A healthcare system affiliated with a community college employed and mentored BSN prepared nurses for new clinical faculty has proven to be successful for the healthcare system, nursing program and qualified students admitted to this nursing program.
