Nursing Career Pathways
Nursing shortages have reached crisis levels after decades of high demand. To help states address this, SREB has worked closely with employers and educators in several states to forge local career pathways. Health care providers, colleges and local school systems, and community leaders came together to streamline everything from credit transfer to job placement.
The goal: Give students a clear picture of how to enter and progress in the profession ─ and prepare them at every stage for what comes next. The pathways include dual enrollment for college credit in high school, plus seamless transition to associate and bachelor’s degrees, and employment along the way as nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses and registered nurses.
