AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the educational prepa-
  ration for practice of professional nursing

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

  Section  1.  The  legislature  hereby finds and declares that with the
increasing complexity of the  American  healthcare  system  and  rapidly
expanding  technology,  the  educational  preparation  of the registered
professional nurse must be expanded. The nurse of  the  future  must  be
prepared  to  partner  with  multiple  disciplines as a collaborator and
manager of the complex patient care journey. Shorter lengths  of  stays,
higher  patient  acuity,  and more sophisticated technologies and proce-
dures are increasing the complexity of patient  care  -  which  in  turn
places  great  demands  on  nursing  competencies.  Other  countries are
responding to these changes by requiring the baccalaureate degree as  an
entry  requirement  for  nursing  licensure  while other professions are
demanding master and doctoral degrees  as  their  entry  point.  Several
recent  research  studies  clearly  demonstrate the added value of addi-
tional education in relation to improved  patient  outcomes;  one  study
demonstrates  that  each ten percent increase in the number of baccalau-
reate prepared nurses results in a five  percent  decrease  in  surgical
