Department Strengthens Partnerships with Seven Nursing Schools

WASHINGTON, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- To provide compassionate, highly-trained nurses to serve the health care needs of the nation's veterans, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is establishing new partnerships with seven of the country's finest nursing schools. The partnerships will bring to 10 the number of collaborations between the Department and nursing schools under the VA Nursing Academy.

"The expanded role of VA in the education of nurses will ensure the Department has the nurses needed to continue our world-class health care for veterans," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. James B. Peake. "The VA Nursing Academy expands our teaching faculty, improves recruitment and retention, and creates new educational and research opportunities."

The VA Nursing Academy is a virtual organization with central administration in Washington. It expands learning opportunities for nursing students at VA facilities, funds additional faculty positions so competitively selected nursing school partners will accept additional baccalaureate-level students, and increases recruitment and retention of VA nurses. The five-year, $40 million program began in 2007.

Seven nursing schools will form new partnerships with nine VA medical centers and join the VA Nursing Academy this year. They are:

VA Facility School of Nursing

Charleston, S.C. - Medical University of South Carolina

Hines, Ill. - Loyola University of Chicago

Michigan Consortia - University of Detroit (Detroit, Saginaw, Mercy, and Battle Creek, Ann Arbor) Saginaw Valley State University

Oklahoma City, Okla. - University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

Providence, R.I. - Rhode Island College

Tampa, Fla. - University of South Florida

Partnerships already in the VA Nursing Academy include the VA medical center in Gainesville, Fla., with the University of Flori
