Nursing, Council on Collegiate Education
The SREB Council on Collegiate Education for Nursing helps expand and strengthen schools of nursing at colleges and universities to reduce the critical shortage of nurse educators needed to train the nation’s registered nurses.
SREB is helping to meet this demand. The Council is focusing on four areas:
- SREB Nurse Educator Consortium, a collaborative of web-based courses for nurse educators
- An annual survey of nursing education programs to document important trends
- An annual meeting each fall
- Leadership development to prepare aspiring nurse educators for leadership roles in academic and practice settings
The Council works to strengthen college-based nursing programs at all levels — associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral — that prepare registered nurses for entry-level and advanced practice positions in the 16 SREB states and the District of Columbia. Building on more than five decades of collaboration with nursing leaders to promote cooperative regional planning, the Council is a proactive force for inspiring excellence in nursing education throughout the region. It also is the only regional organization for nurse educators in the nation affiliated with an interstate compact for education (SREB).
