Specifications include, but are not limited to:UNLV School of Nursing (SON) is seeking a partnership program to open new paths for students to enroll in the UNLV Bachelors School of Nursing (BSN) programs by strengthening the relationships between the University and local hospitals. UNLV SON hopes to contract with a local hospital in the Fall of 2016 and start to transition, develop policies and procedures by Spring 2017. Nurses are the most trusted of all the professions, being ranked first consistently for the last 14 years. Due to a variety of factors, supply and demand of nurses varies greatly. But all predictions show a need for an increased number of nurses in the future, primarily due to the increased number of aged persons and the rapid growth of the healthcare industry. In addition, numerous studies have shown that morbidity and mortality is lower on hospital units that have higher percentages of BSN-prepared nurses, in contrast to ADN-prepared nurses. In response to these needs, UNLV School of Nursing would like to increase its production of BSN graduates and proposed a plan in 2008 that would allow us to increase our admissions 50%, from 144 students per year to 216 students per year. We believe that UNLV is the best BSN nursing program in southern Nevada and a number of employers have told us that they prefer to hire our graduates. More than 80% of our students are local and stay in Nevada post-graduation. Therefore, UNLV School of Nursing is looking for a hospital/hospital system to partner with to allow us to increase our number of BSN graduates. We are requesting partnering proposals to assist us in this goal. The Contract would be in the form of an Affiliation Agreement for a term of five years with an option to renew. Possible Benefits to Hospital Contingent upon Certain Commitments 1. UNLV would send BSN students to this hospital for all possible clinical rotation. This allows students to be oriented and comfortable in one setting. 2. In their final semester, these students engage in clinical improvement projects, which are very helpful to the hospital in improving HCAHPS scores and clinical efficiencies. 3. The hospital would be positioned to offer the best of these students positions immediately after graduation; these students are highly like to be local Nevadans. 4. These students, having already spent close to 800 hours (the equivalent of about 20 weeks) in the hospital, would be positioned to advance through orientation rapidly and assume responsible roles more quickly than those who had not done clinical at their hospital. 5. Selected administrators would be invited to serve on the Advisory Board for the School of Nursing. They would provide input into the education of future nurses based on upcoming needs and new initiatives
