Educational Horizons for Nursing in Massachusetts. A Report on Nursing Education in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts with Recommendations for the Future. Vol. 3.
Malone, Mary F.
Recognizing the shortage of prepared nursing personnel in both service and educational institutions, the Advisory Committee on Nursing Education made a questionnaire survey of all state approved schools of nursing in Massachusetts to aid in planning for nursing education within the state's public educational institutions. Returns from all six baccalaureate programs, from seven of the eight degree programs, from 37 of the 43 diploma programs, and from 28 of the 38 practical nursing programs are analyzed and the following recommendations are made to: (1) develop a system of nursing education, (2) expand the graduat e preparation in nursing, (3) add more baccalaureate programs, (4) assist "R.N. Students" in baccalaureate programs, (5) increase nursing faculties, (6) delay new programs at less than baccalaureate level, (7) improve recruitment, applications and admission procedures, (8) use a community plan for nursing education, and (9) develop new policies and procedures between the community and state colleges. Questionnaires used and the number and locations of approved schools of nursing in the state are included. (MM)
