Nursing Program Review in the State University System of Florida.
Brown, Billye J.
This report presents results of a review of the nine nursing programs in the State University System of Florida, the purpose of which was to evaluate their overall quality and to address specific questions and issues related to nursing, and specifically nursing education, as it is delivered in the State University System. It is noted that the number of nursing graduates is inadequate to meet the needs of the state of Florida; that current programs are unable to meet the need for graduates at either the undergraduate or the graduate level of preparation; and that the demand for nurses is predicted to increase due to the complex health care needs of the elderly, chronically ill persons, and disadvantaged minorities in Florida. Discussed in the review are the following subjects: nursing's role in the health care delivery system in the United States; role of nursing education in Florida; evaluative overview of nursing programs in the State University System; and individual program evaluations of the nine Florida nursing programs. Also provided are systemwide concerns and recommendations for the Board of Regents and universities. Appendices include lists of the consultants who worked on the review and university coordinators.
