The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) and the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) are pleased to present Nursing Education in Canada Statistics, 2007-2008.
This report supports effective health human resources planning by providing statistical analysis about:
- the number of graduates eligible to apply for initial licensure/registration :
- the number of registered nurses obtaining graduate qualifications;
- the number of graduates from nurse practitioner programs;
- innovations in nursing education program access and delivery;
- the composition of faculty delivering nursing education;
- and faculty retention, recruitment and leaves of absence.
- Lower admissions in 2004-2005 resulted in a slight drop in graduates in 2008 after a consistent rise over the past three years.
- Schools responded to the demand for nurses by increasing the number of accelerated, advanced entry programs and expanding the use of distributed learning delivery models.
- Findings point to a potential crisis in nursing education over the next 10 years as faculty retire, unless the number of doctoral graduates increases substantially.
