EMU School of Nursing Injects Much Needed Help Into Nursing Shortage
Date:11/3/2008

YPSILANTI, Mich., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The nursing shortage in Michigan and the country has become critical.

A recent report to the Michigan House Health Policy Committee states that Michigan's demand for registered nurses (RNs) is expected to exceed supply by 7,000 nurses in 2010. There will be a shortage of 18,000 nurses by 2015, according to the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Growth.

Eastern Michigan University's School of Nursing is expanding its programs to provide some much needed help to ease the situation.

"I applaud our nursing faculty for increasing opportunities for an additional 102 students in 2009. The recent 94-percent pass rate performance on the NCLEX exam shows we have an excellent program," said EMU President Susan Martin.

"With the support of President Susan Martin, the provost and faculty, in 2009 we are increasing our pre-licensure placements from 80 to 112; that's a 40-percent increase," said Betty Beard, interim director of the EMU School of Nursing. "We also are increasing the number of students in our RN-to-BSN program from 58 to 128 students. That's 140 percent! We're going full speed ahead!"

The bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) is a four-year degree program focused on preparing pre-licensure students to become registered nurses, while the BSN completion program helps those with an associate's degree in nursing obtain their bachelor's degree.

Recent research shows that hospitals using more BSN-prepared nurses have fewer patient complications and decreased mortality rates. Since patients have much more complex health needs than in the past, it is imperative that they be well prepared educationally.

Beard said the commitment from faculty and the administration to find resources to support the increases will mean additional opportunities for students who want to go into nursing.

In 2008, EMU's program alone turned away many qualified students. According
