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.

Job-Seeking Nurses Face Higher Hurdle as Hospitals Require More-Advanced Degrees

Hundreds of thousands of Americans flocked to nursing schools over the past decade, drawn by the prospect of a well-paying job with a degree that takes as little as two years. But many have graduated only to find the goal posts have shifted, as hospitals seek nurses with more-advanced degrees, partly in response to an increasingly complex health-care system.

The Surprising Benefits of Managing Your Career Like an Academic

The traditional view of careers looks something like a straight line that hopefully slopes in an upwards direction. Professionals seek to get more money and bigger jobs, year after year, until they just can’t do it any more.

But this is a model for a world that changed slower than ours does today. First Blockbuster and now Radio Shack are disappearing from retail strip malls… Kodak went from everywhere to nowhere… large public companies have all but stopped growing.

To top it all off, social media has changed the balance of power. Without even knowing each other, customers of a firm band together to ridicule their service, quality and prices. News travels in seconds. Social influence is even toppling entire governments today, so how can you expect your career path to still go in a straight line?

In this environment, you have to be flexible. Leave your expectations behind, and change as the world changes. The future belongs to the most flexible, not the strongest or smartest.

The problem, of course, is that no one knows how the future will evolve. That’s why I’ve been looking at a wide range of possible answers.

One out-of-the-box idea is that academic careers might serve as a new model for other types of careers. To illustrate, here’s a thought-provoking passage from a research paper by Yehuda Baruch:

…lateral and even downwards movement are accepted (e.g. when a Dean returns to serve as a Professor, conducting research and teaching, it is not considered “demotion”). Upwards mobility is limited, even not desired (becoming a Dean might take scholars off the research route)… Sabbaticals are part of the career. Perhaps more fundamental, the academic career model builds on networking within and across organizations.

The main reason this idea caught my attention is that while professors aren’t always known for their flexibility, they are expected to both conduct research and drive learning in their chosen field. This quest for knowledge should power your career as well.

Thinking of your career through the lens of this “academic” model might lead you to a much more interesting and robust career than you would get from employing a traditional corporate mindset.

For example, your goal might morph from trying to get promoted as often as possible to becoming a leading expert in your field. You might compare yourself to all experts in your field, instead of to all the managers in your department.

5 Ways to Keep Your Nursing Career Moving Forward

The adage says, “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush,” and its wisdom is applicable to job seekers. It is usually far easier to find another job if you’re already employed. But how can you ensure that the worst never happens to you — that you’re never left without a job and possibilities for your next opportunity?

Here are five suggestions from career coach Deborah Brown-Volkman:
Keep Thinking Positive

ounds deceptively simple, but try embracing the power of positive thinking when you’re thinking about your career. “When you tell yourself something bad will happen to your job, something bad will probably happen,” says Brown-Volkman. “If you tell yourself that you are marketable and confident and that you will always be working, your words can make this true.”
Keep Thinking Ahead

If you’re not following trends within your particular industry, you could be caught off guard by a layoff. Is your position or division vulnerable to outsourcing, further automation or elimination? Brown-Volkman says, “If your job is being eliminated or outsourced, you will want to know about it before you are in the room with the human resources person telling you that your job is going away.”

She urges professionals, “Look for trends and then train yourself in growth areas. Having the right skills at the right time ensures that no matter what is happening around you, you will be needed and employable.”

New loans aim to keep nurses in R.I.

Nursing students in Rhode Island have a new option for financing their education — a loan program with zero interest for up to four years, provided they work in Rhode Island.

With Governor Chafee in attendance, the Rhode Island Student Loan Authority on Tuesday announced its new Nursing Reward Program, saying the program was intended to offset a projected nursing shortage by encouraging graduates of the state’s nursing schools to take jobs in Rhode Island.

The loan program will be available for nursing students starting with the 2011-2012 academic year. To participate, the borrower must become a licensed registered nurse and work at least 20 hours a week, with responsibility for direct patient care at a licensed health-care facility in Rhode Island. Nurses who meet those terms will not have to pay interest on loans obtained through this program for up to 48 months.

UM School of Nursing Students Engage Lawmakers on Critical Issues for Nursing

A large group of students, faculty members and administrators from the University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) traveled to Annapolis on Feb. 23 to help lawmakers better understand the role of the nurse and the needs of nursing education.

An underlying theme of the 2011 Advocacy Day was the urgent challenge presented by changes in the delivery of health care. One factor is the steps that Maryland is taking to best put into effect provisions of the Affordable Care Act. Another is a far-reaching report by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) on the future of nursing that, among other things, calls for nurses to be allowed to practice to the scope of their education and training.

School of Nursing Dean Janet D. Allan, PhD, RN, FAAN, led the School’s effort to familiarize lawmakers with the IOM recommendations, which comprise “an action-oriented blueprint for how nurses will be contributing to the health care needs of the nation.”
