Improving the Regional Nursing Pipeline – Professional Development

Program Area:
Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:

This grant provides funding for professional development to help reduce nursing student attrition. Nursing faculty, preceptors and educators from 14 school districts, community colleges, and universities will be trained to implement a model that helps students succeed despite barriers they face. The training will be delivered in a series of sessions over two years. The third year will provide a train-the-trainer component. Two cohorts are expected to complete the training within the first two years. A goal of the project is to achieve a five percent or greater increase in nursing student retention rates annually at all participating post-secondary institutions and to improve graduation rates. By implementing a train-the-trainer model, participants at partner institutions will offer repeat coursework and training every six months to capture new faculty and nurses. Southern Regional Area Health Education Center (AHEC) will host an online community to facilitate continued collaboration, communication, and the sharing of best practices that can improve faculty skills and increase student retention.
