LSUHSC awarded grant to address nursing shortage
Date:9/15/2008

New Orleans, LA LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Nursing has been awarded a $100,000 grant by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) to provide scholarships to individuals under-represented in nursing or from disadvantaged backgrounds in an accelerated nursing degree program. The funding will support ten scholarships in LSUHSC's Career Alternative RN Education, or CARE, Program, expanding enrollment and the number of fully qualified nurses prepared to practice.

LSUHSC Nursing's CARE Program, established in 2004, offers an accelerated, rigorous and focused curriculum to prepare graduates to earn a BSN degree and complete the RN licensure examination in less than a two-year frame of study. It was designed for those who already have a degree in another discipline but would like to change careers to become a nurse.

"The CARE faculty of the LSUHSC School of Nursing envision the RWJF New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program as a means of reducing the financial stress on CARE students," notes Stephanie Pierce, RN, MN, Acting Department Chair of LSUHSC Nursing's CARE Program. "Exit interviews reveal the primary reason for withdrawing from our CARE Program is financial."

The RWJF New Careers in Nursing Scholarship Program supports accelerated programs, which offer the most efficient route to licensure as a registered nurse for adults who have already completed a baccalaureate or graduate degree in a discipline other than nursing. Although enrollment in these programs has steadily increased over the past few years, many potential students are unable to enroll since already having a college degree disqualifies them for receiving most federal financial aid programs for entry-level students. The New Careers in Nursing scholarships address this problem, and will also address the overall nursing shortage, by enabling hundreds of students to launch their nursing careers through accelerated education.
