Wall Street Journal: Colleges Lock Horns Over Nursing Programs

Four-year institutions try to prevent community colleges from offering advanced programs

When California state Sen. Marty Block was working on a bill to allow community colleges to offer some bachelor’s degrees, a B.S. in nursing seemed like a sure bet.

Most of the four-year California State University campuses that offer a bachelor’s in nursing have to turn students away, at a time when the state’s hospitals increasingly demand that new nurses hold such degrees. But Mr. Block, a Democrat, soon got the message from four-year schools and their lobbyists: Stay off our turf.

So the final bill that passed in 2014 allowed community colleges to offer bachelor’s programs in such subjects as mortuary sciences and ranch management but not nursing.

Goal of new nursing institute: improve patient care

Providence Health & Services in Los Angeles is creating a nursing institute to advance quality patient care through professional development, education, technology and research. 

The Providence Southern California Nursing Institute will train nursing graduate residents, established RNs and other clinicians at Providence’s five acute care medical centers and ancillary facilities including hospice care, long-term care and outpatient clinics.

Envisioned by regional CNO Katherine Bullard, RN, the institute will be under the direction of Kathleen Harren, RN, MHA, program director, who is laying its foundation and working with a core team of nurses. They expect operations to begin this spring.

“We want to inspire excellence through innovation and empower our nurses and other professionals to expand their abilities and their horizons,” Bullard said. “Across the nation, healthcare organizations are looking for innovative programs like this institute to enhance the roles of our profession.”

Nurses to play a greater role in healthcare

Savinh Pouv wears a white coat, treats patients and is considered a primary care provider at the Los Angeles County clinic where she works — but she is not a doctor.

That does not matter to Maria Avalos. What matters, the 55 year-old homemaker said, is that when she comes to the Long Beach clinic to get treated for her diabetes, she always sees Pouv, a nurse practitioner.

“Before, they sent me from one to another,” doctor, Avalos said during a visit last week. “I like her —she checks me well, she has my records, she checks my medications and changes them if I need.”

California is among 23 states that allow nurse practitioners to act as primary care providers without a doctor’s supervision, a move aimed at stemming a shortage of physicians and reducing costs.

Now the nurses are poised to take on an even greater role as Los Angeles County and other health systems develop “medical home” models of care that expand the number of primary care providers, including nurses, to meet the requirements of national healthcare legislation, reduce unnecessary hospital visits and cut costs.

Proponents say allowing such nurses to work as primary care providers can ensure that patients get quick, cheap access to care. But some doctors worry that the nurses overreach, doing more than they are trained to do.

Nurses Lead the Way!

Far from the fear-mongering catch phrases of “Death Panels” and “Obama-Care,” there is a bit of good news from the trenches of the battle for health care.

The California Nurses Association, one of this country’s very best labor organizations, has just signed off on a ground-breaking agreement with Kaiser Permanente, one of our very best health care providers. The use of the phrase “win-win” should always raise appropriate skepticism. But here’s what happened:

California’s nursing shortage hasn’t been fixed

The United States has been experiencing a shortage of nurses for more than a decade, which has left our nation with a diminished ability to educate the incoming population of nursing students. This is especially true in California, where a booming population coupled with higher education budget cuts, has left the state with a questionable nursing future.

Since the start of the state’s Nurse Education Initiative in 2005, California has thankfully seen a 78.7 percent increase in new student enrollments as a result of opening 35 additional nursing programs. But California is still scrambling to get out of the nursing shortage hole and, in the 2008-09 academic year, saw the increase of new enrollments slow.
