Nebraska Joins Michigan in Using Accelerated Programs to Fight Nursing Shortage

The University of Nebraska Medical Center has begun an accelerated nursing program that compresses two and one-half years of instruction into one year, according to Omaha Channel.com.

The nation faces not only a nursing shortage but a nursing school instructor shortage, which means that training large number of new nurses is no easy trick. Accelerating nursing programs is intended to boost the productivity of those instructors that do exist.

As previously reported, Grand Rapids is also accelerating its nursing instruction program.
