University Hospitals and Kent State University are joining forces to address the ongoing nursing shortage in Northeast Ohio through a new Nursing education initiative that will increase the number of baccalaureate-degreed nurses who enter the workforce each year.
This program will better meet the needs of students, employers and the community and will serve as a model for other communities around the United States who face similar challenges. Specifically, the program will tackle the challenges that nursing students face at every stage of their education and careers by:
