AACN releases annual survey results

The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) relesed data from their annual survey which shows that enrollment in entry-level baccalaureate nursing programs increased by 13% from 2004 to 2005. Though this increase is welcome, their survey showed that 32,617 qualified applications were denied due to a shortage of nurse educators.
