CCEN Survey of Nursing Education


Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of questions does the survey cover?

  • The survey queries a broad range of issues critical to nursing education today: nursing program capacity (enrollment — and specific constraints on adding more), faculty and administrator availability, specific faculty credentials, reasons for resignations, retirement timelines, and salaries at the associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. 

Why will a broader representation of institutions be better?

  • If the data are truly representative of states and the region, they will be very valuable for a wide variety of reasons. Departments and institutions can use them with their boards and community groups to showcase themselves within the context of their state and the region. They can include them in accreditation reports, foundation and grant funding requests, and annual reports with confidence that the comparisons are valid. They become valuable not only to showcase areas in which your program stands out in positive ways but also where it faces challenges — and needs help.
