Health and Hospital Council, Charlotte, NC.
The number of health workers in Charlotte is inadequate. A local survey reported approximately 10 0/0 of total positions to be vacant. In an effort to help meet the critical manpower needs of the area, the Health Manpower Committee made these recommendations: existing local programs for registered nurses should continue to work toward increasing their annual number of graduates by 75 0/0; the baccalaureate program in nursing of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte should be expanded to 80 graduates per year; Central Piedmont Community College should expand its facilities and staff and expand its Licensed Practical Nurses program to 140 students per year; other health training programs need to be expanded; the existing health career informational program needs to be strengthened; and institutions employing health workers should intensify efforts at continuing education for employees.
