Statewide Partners

ConferenceWe believe that a private/public partnership model is essential to meet nursing workforce needs. The Wisconsin initiative was built on a multi-sector collaboration including state and regional Workforce Development Boards, the health care service industry, the University of Wisconsin (UW) system, the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) and state policymakers. We further believe that such partnerships ensure the system to system collaboration necessary for sustainable changes to nursing education. This project has demonstrated that these partnerships do result in an increase in the number of nurse educators, which in turns results in the education of more nurses.
