Beginning the Bachelor of Science in Nursing in High School: How Kentucky Created a 120-Credit Hour Nursing Career Pathway describes how SREB spent a year working with a coalition of Kentucky educators and health-care employers to develop a seamless sequence of courses and credentials that help students transition from high school to community and technical college programs, the BSN and employment as nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs).
This webinar focused on recent developments with SARA-related state authorization of distance learning and professional licensure — and how these are related to nursing in general and the CCEN Nurse Educator Consortium in particular. SREB’s SARA Director, Mary Larson, led the webinar, and she was joined by Marshall Hill, Executive Director of the National Council for SARA.
Nursing students and instructors can benefit from incorporating free textbooks, complete online courses, and learning materials in the health sciences field into their nursing programs. Dr. Robin Donaldson and Lisa Close, Florida Virtual Campus, led our webinar about how Florida and others are using open educational resources to benefit students and faculty.
Tim Shaughnessy, Developer of Career Pathway Programs of Study, SREB, led a presentation on the Kentucky Nursing Career Pathway and engaged participants in discussion on challenges and opportunities for other programs to replicate the pathway.
