Qualified Nursing Students Turned Away Due to Lack of Faculty

A recent report by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing has found that while nursing school enrollment increased by 5.1% in 2011, over 75,000 students were not accepted due to a lack of faculty and teaching sites. The the Institute of Medicine (IOM) report Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, addressed this issue with their fifth recommendation that aims to increase the number of nurses with doctoral degrees by two-fold in order to boost the dwindling number of qualified nurse faculty.
