The Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence is the only organization in Colorado exclusively dedicated to ensuring that our state has adequate numbers of highly-qualified nurses. We bring together educational institutions, hospitals, government agencies, foundations and the business community to investigate the sources of the shortfall, develop strategies to address it and secure funding to implement those plans. With an emphasis on collaboration and innovation, the Center leads the way toward developing Colorado's nursing workforce of the future. The Center's research has examined important facets of the nursing shortage in Colorado, such as: The readiness of recent nursing graduates to meet current practice demands. The critical shortage of qualified faculty at all our nursing schools. The importance of broad-based coordination to develop effective solutions. Findings such as these shape the Center's priorities and projects.
