  6. Increase Education Level of Nurses Prepare nurses to meet new challenges in health & health care. Increase the proportion of nurses with BSN and higher degrees. Increase the number of nurses with doctorates. Implement nurse residency programs.

  7. Education Evidence • Some studies show that higher proportions of BSN-prepared nurses are associated with lower rates of medication errors, mortality, and failure to rescue. • Research also shows that BSN-prepared nurses have stronger diagnostic skills and are better at evaluating interventions. • A growing body of research shows a connection between baccalaureate education and lower mortality rates. Studies show association between higher nurse education level and improved health care outcomes.
