The new post on the One Strong Voice
blog, “Following the Money in Nursing Education,” looks at the history of Title VIII funding. It points out that both in the 2000s and in the 1970s, substantial increases in new nurses followed substantial increases in Title VIII funding. The data from the 2000s is also fully consistent with data from NCLEX and the American Association of Colleges of Nursing counts on baccalaureate students and new nursing graduates. There could also be a bumper crop of new NCLEX passers in 2012, possibly 13,000 more than in 2011—associated with increases in Title VIII funding under President Obama.
