BILL NUMBER: S1513

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the education law, in relation to establishing a New
York state nursing faculty scholarship incentive program for advanced
degrees in nursing


PURPOSE :
To provide scholarship incentives tar nurses to further their studies
towards a masters' or doctoral degree, in exchange far agreeing to
teach or train nursing candidates in an accredited New York state
nursing program.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Section one -- Amends section 605 of the Education Law to provide tar
a nursing scholarship incentive program for advanced degrees in
nursing.

Section two -- Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :
The shortage of nurses in underserved areas of our state is a critical
need. In order to address that need, more nurses must be trained
Unfortunately, the number of nurses with advanced degrees who are
available to teach and train new nursing candidates in the state's
nursing schools is rapidly decreasing, with many more retirements
expected within the next ten years.

This bill would encourage those with a current professional nursing
degree to seek an advanced degree and, in exchange, agree to teach or
train new nursing candidates in an accredited nursing program within
New York State. Scholarship incentives like these will be a major step
toward addressing the nursing shortage which currently exists in many
parts of New York State.
