Title:
Designated Education Unit: Effective Strategy to Provide Quality Outcomes while Growing Two Programs
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The demand for RNs in Texas between 2005 and 2020 is expected to increase by 86% and the supply only by 53%. In response, Texas schools of nursing must double the number of graduates to 15,199 by 2013 (Texas Team, 2008). Midwestern State University (MSU) Wilson School of Nursing (WSON) has responded by participated in the state’s drive for increased admissions and graduations through a partnership with United Regional Hospital (URH). These partners will continue their commitment to leadership in nursing education by increasing the number of students admitted in both the undergraduate and graduate program through the innovative use of a designated education unit and the encouragement of clinical preceptors to return to school for their masters degree. Clinical preceptors concurrently enrolled in a masters-degree program will develop a faculty resource pool of Master-prepared nurses and this reciprocal relationship will benefit both the hospital the students and the university. .
