Tennessee Is Short On Nurses, And Those To Teach Them

On Saturday, Tom Wilemon, of The Tennessean, reported how Tennessee is not only short on RNs, but Nurses with advanced degrees as well. Mr. Wilemon detailed how over 3,000 nursing school applications were rejected not on their merit but because there was not enough nursing faculty to teach all the aspiring nurses. The article also mentioned the recommendations made by the IOM's Initiative on the Future of Nursing committee's report: "The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health" as a foundation to change Tennessee nursing education policy.
