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

to Beard, there are more than 500 current EMU students who have expressed intent to be nursing majors.

"Most programs talk about whether or not their students will have jobs when they graduate. In nursing, we know that it's not if they will get a job, but what job offer they will take," Beard said.

"It's not just about quantity, though," Beard said. "It's about quality as well. One of the quality indicators of any nursing program is the pass rate of students on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)."

"Our percentage of students who passed the exam on the first try was 94.2 percent from October 2007 to October 2008. The average for Michigan nursing programs was 87 to 88 percent," said Beard.

There's even more encouraging news for Michigan and its ailing economy. More than 90 percent of the students who go through the EMU nursing program stay in Michigan, Beard said.

"EMU and the School of Nursing are committed to educating a workforce that will improve the quality of health care in Michigan. We are also committed to providing a quality nursing education for men and women who will be employed in worthwhile careers in the profession of nursing," Beard said.
