Forces that have produced national reform of a fragmented, inefficient, and expensive healthcare services sector have also set the stage for reform of a fragmented, inefficient, and expensive system for nursing education. Changes in health care, health policy, education policy, and funding for public higher education have led to the development of new nursing education models designed to increase the number of baccalaureate-prepared nurses entering the workforce. This article describes the development and implementation of one such model that features a common concept-based curriculum and university–community college partnerships at its core. This plan increases access for nursing students across the state to earn a prelicensure bachelor of science in nursing degree and preserves the integrity and accessibility of associate degree nursing education.

National Reports on Nursing that include Nursing Education Recommendations
By 2030, the nursing profession will look vastly different and will be caring for a changing America. Nursing school curricula need to be strengthened so that nurses are prepared to help promote health equity, reduce health disparities, and improve the health and well-being of everyone. [page 189]
The vision of the Committee on the Future of Nursing 2020–2030, which informs this report, is the achievement of health equity in the United States built on strengthened nursing capacity and expertise. [Summary]

The Tri-Council for Nursing, an alliance between the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, the American Nurses Association, the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, and the National League for Nursing, recognizes the power of collective innovation and transformation. While the COVID-19 pandemic is still ongoing at the writing of this report, the Tri-Council recognized the imperative to identify and document the lessons learned from the past nine months and inspire a call for action to capitalize on opportunities for transformational improvements to nursing education, practice, and regulation.
Opportunities for nursing education include:
• Expand content on public health, crisis management, equity, mental health, and determinants of health into nursing curricula and interprofessional education (IPE).
• Foster academic-practice partnerships to utilize nursing students for vaccinations, telehealth, and contact tracing and other tasks to alleviate shortage of staff and burnout.
• Provide necessary resources for educators, students, and practicing nurses to optimize virtual environments to enhance education and health outcomes for all.
• Conduct additional research on simulation-quality data compared to clinical and alternative modalities of teaching to ensure educators deliver the best evidence-based content available.
• Increase spending on nursing education (public/private messages) funded by the government and private sector to expand access to health care for all. [page 10]
