1 Syllabus January-February 2011 Vol. 37 No. 1 THE NEWSLETTER OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES OF NURSING New AACN Data Indicate Expanding Enrollment in Baccalaureate Nursing Programs for 10th Consecutive Year Donna Shalala to Receive Nursing Spectrum/Gannett Foundation Award at Spring Annual Meeting Donna E. Shalala, president of the University of Miami and chair of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Initiative on the Future of Nursing at the INSIDE SYLLABUS: Continued on page 5 AACN Seeks Nominations for New Novice Faculty Awards Call for Abstracts for Hot Issues Conference 10 Questions with Julie Sochalski CNL Certification Examination Schedule and Resources AACN Conferences Opportunities The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) has released preliminary survey data showing that enrollment in entry-level baccalaureate nursing programs increased by 6.1% from 2009 to 2010, which marks the 10th consecutive year of enrollment growth in professional registered nurse (RN) programs. Preliminary findings are based on data reported from 648 of the 807 schools of nursing in the U.S. (80.3% response rate) with baccalaureate and/or graduate nursing programs. Though enrollment is growing, nursing schools point to a shortage of faculty and clinical education sites as the primary barriers to future expansion. Given the calls for a more highly educated nursing workforce from the Institute of Medicine, the Tri-Council for Nursing, and other authorities, we are pleased to see that demand for baccalaureate nursing education continues to rise, said AACN President Kathleen Potempa. AACN applauds the efforts undertaken by schools to find creative ways to expand the nursing student population despite funding cuts and resource constraints facing many academic programs. AACN s annual survey is the most reliable source for actual (versus projected) data on enrollment and graduations reported by the nation s baccalaureate- and graduate-degree programs in nursing. This year s 6.1% enrollment increase for entry-level baccalaureate programs is based on data supplied by the same 536 schools reporting in both 2009 and To download a graphic depicting enrollment changes in baccalaureate nursing programs from , see Preliminary AACN data show a strong surge in applications to baccalaureate nursing programs this year as a result of growing student demand and changing employer expectations. The number of applications to entry-level baccalaureate programs increased from 208,784 in 2009 to 226,675 in 2010 (8.6% increase). The AACN survey also found that the number of students enrolled in baccalaureate degree completion programs, also known as RN to BSN programs, increased by 20.6% from 2009 to 2010 (469 schools reporting). This year marks the 8th year of enrollment increases in these programs and offers further validation of the need for nurses to advance their education and for employers to cultivate a more highly qualified RN workforce. Looking ahead, AACN will work collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure that enrollment in both baccalaureate and master s level degree completion programs for RNs expands even further to meet the recommendations outlined in the recent Future of Nursing report prepared by the Institute of Medicine (see Preliminary data from AACN s Fall 2010 survey show that enrollment in master s and doctoral degree nursing programs increased significantly this year. Nursing schools with master s programs reported a 9.8% increase in enrollment (427 schools reporting) and a 10.1% increase in graduations (389 schools reporting). In doctoral nursing programs, the greatest growth was seen in Doctor of Nursing Practice programs where Continued on page 3 1

3 News & Information Continued from page 1 enrollment increased by 25.6% (113 schools reporting) from 2009 to During this same time period, enrollment in research-focused doctoral programs (i.e., PhD, DNSc) increased by 4.5 percent or 180 students according to preliminary estimates (117 schools reporting). Moving more nursing students into graduate programs is a top priority for the profession given the growing demand for more nurses to serve as primary care providers, teachers, researchers, leaders, and specialists, said Dr. Potempa. As the work to reform health care continues, many more nurses with master s and doctoral degrees will be needed to provide essential healthcare service, including nurses to serve as Advanced Practice Registered Nurses and in other specialty roles. Though interest in nursing careers remains strong, many individuals seeking to enter the profession cannot be accommodated in nursing programs despite meeting all program entrance requirements. Preliminary AACN data show that 52,115 qualified applications were turned away from 565 entry-level baccalaureate nursing programs in This number far exceeds final data reported on students turned away each year from 2005 through 2009, which ranged from 36,400 to 42,981 applications. AACN expects this number to increase when final data on qualified applications turned away in 2010 is available in March Based on data received from 367 schools of nursing, the primary barriers to accepting all qualified students at nursing colleges and universities continue to be a shortage of clinical placement sites (66.8%) and faculty (62.9%). For a graphic showing the number of qualified applicants turned away from entry-level baccalaureate nursing programs over the past eight years, see TurnedAway.pdf.

4 News 10 Questions & Information with Julie Sochalski 1. Could you tell us a bit about the Division s mission and your principal duties as director? The Division of Nursing is considered the authority within HRSA and the Federal Government on nursing workforce development and policy. Its mission, broadly speaking, is to provide professional nursing expertise and leadership in planning, coordinating, evaluating, and supporting the development and utilization of the Nation s health personnel resources. Achieving that mission involves the design and implementation of programs that support the development, utilization, and quality of nursing personnel to promote the health of individuals, families, and communities. We work with State and local areas in planning, developing and improving Julie Sochalski, PhD, FAAN, RN Director, Division of Nursing, Bureau of Health Professions Associate Professor, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing As the Director for the Division of Nursing, Julie Sochalski serves as a principal advisor on national policy for nursing research, practice, and education with the overall objective of improving the quality of healthcare and nursing service in the nation. Dr. Sochalski has directed a series of national and international studies funded by National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other private and government foundations focused on the variation in patient outcomes in both in-patient and out-patient settings and the factors associated with nursing care that help to explain that variation. She is a national expert on the healthcare workforce and has served as a senior scholar with the Bureau of Health Professions at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, advising on research and policy issues regarding the nursing and medical workforce, particularly on the current national nursing shortage. She has published in interdisciplinary health policy and health services research journals on the conceptual and empirical foundations for the relationship between the structure and the quality of care and patient outcomes, and on domestic and international trends in the healthcare workforce and their implications for public policy. Dr. Sochalski received her MS and PhD degrees from the University of Michigan, focusing on Health Economics, Public Policy and Public Health nursing. nursing services and educational programs. We conduct and collaborate on studies that evaluate nursing personnel requirements, distribution, and availability, and provide expertise and consultation on the data requirements and analytic strategies to assess the Nation s nursing workforce. The Division of Nursing collaborates across the Federal Government in programmatic efforts to achieve the strategic goals for HHS and for HRSA. We also work with key stakeholder groups on health care workforce needs and related policies. Finally, we provide consultation to public and private organizations, agencies, institutions, the PHS Regional Offices, agencies and departments of the Federal Government, and international agencies and ministries of health on all aspects of nursing. In my role as the Director of the Division of Nursing, I direct HRSA s program of support for advancing nursing education, practice, and research with the overall goal of improving the Nation s capacity to deliver quality nursing services. Central to that effort is the development of legislative/policy proposals and strategic initiatives to support its mission. I serve as principal advisor to the Associate Administrator of the Bureau of Health Professions and the Administrator of the Health Resources and Services Administration on national policy for nursing education, practice and research. In addition, I represent the Bureau, HRSA, and the Department on program planning and policy development activities with a wide range of regional, national, and international organizations and stakeholders, and address health care workforce development issues at national and international meetings. 2. What compelled you to become involved in health policy? I have had a long-standing interest in government, public policy, and civic engagement. I registered to vote on my 18 th birthday and voted in the local school board election one month later; health policy comported well with that enduring interest. Since completing my basic nursing education, I ve found no shortage of opportunities to be involved in health policy issues, and each opportunity offered new knowledge and another step on the ladder of further involvement. 3. What is one of the biggest changes you ve seen in professional nursing since you began your career? Among the many noteworthy changes in professional nursing over my career, one that stands out is the multiplicity of roles, positions, and career pathways for nurses. There is no corner of health care in which you cannot find a nurse. The breadth and depth of roles and opportunities is truly 4

5 News 10 Questions & Information with Julie Sochalski quite remarkable, underscoring what a dynamic career one can have as a nurse. 4. What was your role in preparing the IOM s Future of Nursing report? I did not play a role in preparing the IOM s recent report on the Future of Nursing. In my position prior to joining the Division of Nursing, I was invited to provide a background paper on health care reform and the nursing workforce. 5. What impact do you think this report will have on the profession? The IOM s report was written right in the midst of the national debate on and passage of health reform quite a watershed moment. The report, in the context of health reform, creates the opportunity for professional nursing and its many stakeholders to chart the pathway to better health for all through a rightsized, well-skilled, and effectively deployed nursing workforce. 6. How can nursing schools fully engage in advancing the recommendations in the IOM report? The IOM report includes a wide range of recommendations targeting education and training initiatives to support the development of the nursing workforce. These recommendations span the full range of educational development basic and advanced education, as well as lifelong learning offering schools of nursing a wide array of educational opportunities to pursue. 7. Given your research background, how can we recruit more students into careers as nursing scientists? Developing and offering career pathways to the role of nurse researcher/ scientist is one important step. Educational/financial support to pursue those pathways is another important feature. Equally important, though, is effective mentoring. Without role models and effective mentoring, we may develop the scientific skills to become a scientist, but those skills need to be harnessed and guided in order to produce successful nurse researchers. 8. What advice do you have about preparing future nurse leaders? This is a defining moment for health care and nursing; and in that context, nursing s leadership today and in the future must first and foremost lead, and engage the profession in that quest. The opportunities to chart health care and professional nursing before us today are both auspicious and daunting. Not everyone is equally well-positioned to lead, but everyone in the profession can play a vital role. Identifying, mentoring, and supporting the future leadership in professional nursing to assure that we meet the health needs of the public is the leadership challenge we face. 9. What impact do you think healthcare reform will have on the nursing workforce and scope of practice? The Affordable Care Act has included a number of provisions to support the development of the nursing workforce. For example, the Prevention and Public Health Fund of the Affordable Care Act provided funds to schools of nursing to expand training opportunities in primary care. It also supported funding for nurse-managed health centers, expanding access to care for underserved, vulnerable populations, and increased clinical training sites for nurses. Increased funding for the National Health Service Corps, for loan repayment and scholarships, is providing greater educational support for advanced practice registered nurses in exchange for working in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs). 10. Looking ahead, what are some of the major opportunities and challenges on the horizon for nursing? As I said, this is a propitious moment for health care and nursing. We face our greatest challenge and greatest opportunity to shape the future of health care delivery and health of the public. Seizing that opportunity will require full engagement of the profession that is guided by insightful, visionary leadership. Identifying, mentoring, and supporting the future leaders in professional nursing will ensure that nursing is a full partner in creating the health care system that the public deserves.
