AN ACT directing the board of regents and the state education department
  to investigate the scope of nursing education programs and develop   a
  model  for  improved  articulation of the education program for career
  mobility from one classification to another

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Short title.  This act shall be known and may be cited as
the "development of model for articulation and career mobility act".
  S 2. Legislative findings and intent. The  legislature  hereby  recog-
nizes  the  need  to increase the pool of available nursing resources to
meet the increased demands on the health care delivery system. The  more
complex  nature  of  illnesses, constraints on reimbursement, pressuring
accelerated treatment and earlier patient discharge,  the  explosion  of
technology,  and  requirements for intense monitoring for quality assur-
ance, may be diverting nurses  from  the  bedside  into  early  burnout,
retirement  or  employment  elsewhere.  The  state's  nursing  education
program, encompassing nursing assistants, licensed practical nurses  and
licensed  (registered)  nurses  should  be better articulated for career
mobility in order to make the  nursing  profession  more  attractive  to
individuals  and  for  recruiting  and retaining qualified nurses in the
health care delivery system.
  S 3. The board of regents  and  the  state  education  department,  in
consultation with  the department of health shall:
  (1) investigate current education programs for nurses in all settings,
such  as  high schools, vocational-technical schools, community colleges
and universities, to identify the scope of nursing education programs in
the state;
