A Blueprint for the Education of Nurses in New York State.
New York State Nurses Association, Albany.
Designed with the objective that the nursing needs of the people of the state be met by qualified practitioners of nursing prepared in institutions of higher education, the blueprint includes among its proposals the following: (1) that plans be completed for the transfer of all nursing programs to institutions of higher learning by 1972, (2) that no hospital diploma or practical nursing programs be established after January 1, 1967, (3) that priority be given to expansion of baccalaureate degree programs to meet the demands for teachers, supervisors, administrators, and professional practioners, (4) that by 1976, 30 percent of the nurses graduated annually be prepared at the professional level and 70 percent at the technical level, (5) that graduates of diploma and associate degree programs be assisted to continue their preparation toward a baccalaureate degree, (6) that qualified practical nurses be assisted to obtain preparation in degree-granting programs, and (7) that opportunities be provided for diploma, associate degree, and practical nursing program graduates to obtain advanced placement in degree programs through proficiency examinations administered by the state Education Department. Suggestions for composition and structure of the planning groups as well as resources for guidance are included. (JK)
