STATEMENT ON NURSING EDUCATION.
National League for Nursing, New York, NY.
IN 1965, THE LEAGUE, IN CONVENTION, ADOPTED A RESOLUTION ENCOURAGING ORDERLY MOVEMENT OF NURSING EDUCATION INTO INSTITUTIONS OF HIGHER LEARNING, CLEAR INTERPRETATION OF THE KINDS OF EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, AND EDUCATIONAL PLANNING AT ALL LEVELS FOR A DESIRABLE BALANCE OF NURSING PERSONNEL WITH VARIOUS KINDS OF PREPARATION. IN 1967, THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS, ACKNOWLEDGING A SERIOUS SHORTAGE OF FACULTY, THE RELATIVELY SLOW INCREASE IN NUMBERS OF NURSES PREPARING AT THE MASTERS AND DOCTORAL LEVELS, A GROWING IMBALANCE IN THE RATIO OF REGISTERED NURSES TO AUXILIARY PERSONNEL, THE MARKED MOVEMENT TOWARD THE DEVELOPMENT OF NURSING PROGRAMS IN JUNIOR AND SENIOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, AND THE RAPID CLOSING OF DIPLOMA PROGRAMS, ADOPTED A NEW STATEMENT. THE STATEMENT AFFIRMED THAT (1) TRANSFERENCE OF NURSING EDUCATION PROGRAMS FROM HOSPITALS TO EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS SHOULD TAKE PLACE AFTER DETERMINATION THAT THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS CAN PREPARE AT LEAST AS MANY GRADUATES AS THE HOSPITALS AND AFTER COMMUNITY PLANNING HAS ASSURED THAT THE RESOURCES OF THE NEW PROGRAM WILL BE ADEQUATE FOR QUALITY EDUCATION, AND (2) THERE MUST BE A GREATER PROPORTION OF PROFESSIONAL NURSES TO TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL NURSES AND A BETTER BALANCE BETWEEN THESE GROUPS AND AUXILIARY PERSONNEL. ACTION TO BE UNDERTAKEN INCLUDED EXPANSION AND DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATIONALLY SOUND ASSOCIATE DEGREE AND BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS, ASSISTANCE TO ALL PROGRAMS TOWARD SCHOOL AND FACULTY IMPROVEMENT AND STUDENT RECRUITMENT, AND GUIDANCE IN DEVELOPING CURRICULA FOR AUXILIARY NURSING PROGRAMS. AN APPENDIX INCLUDES NURSING EDUCATION INFORMATION. (JK)
