The KHA Workforce Survey will begin in April. The entire survey has been revamped and improved based on member input.

In order to obtain the most complete picture of the hospital workforce in Kentucky, KHA needs input from every hospital. If you have not already done so this year, please provide the name and email address for the person who will complete the survey in your organization.

To submit your information or if you have any questions, please contact Chuck Warnick at KHA (cwarnick@kyha.com).

As part of KHA's mission to support its member hospitals by assuring there is an adequate, well-trained and qualified health care professional workforce for the future, the Kentucky Hospital Research and Education Foundation (KHREF) recently made a donation to support nurse education in Eastern Kentucky.

Last month, Appalachian Regional Healthcare (ARH) and Galen College of Nursing announced a partnership to offer an associate degree in nursing program at a new location based in the ARH System Center building in Hazard. In response to the continued and growing nursing shortage in the region, Galen College and ARH have joined together to offer additional nursing education opportunity, in support of both the local nursing workforce, and the need throughout Eastern Kentucky.

“The need for nurses is great in Hazard and across the region,” said Joe Grossman,...

The Kentucky Center for Nursing (KCN) began as the Kentucky Nurses Capacity Consortium (KNCC) in 2008 with a group of volunteers interested in advancing nursing. Representation has included members from each of the various colleges and universities, major health care systems, Kentucky Board of Nursing, Kentucky Hospital Association, Kentucky Organization of Nurse Leaders, Kentucky Nurses’ Association, governmental workforce agencies and more. The KCN is especially focused on increasing the education level of nurses, providing residency training for new nurses and fellowship programs for advanced practice nurses, removing barriers to practice and care, developing leaders and leadership opportunities for nurses, increasing the racial, ethnic and gender diversity of the nursing workforce, and designing new models of community-based care.

The KCN brings together many of the state’s strongest leaders in improving health care quality, access, and affordability. To learn more about the KCN’s organizational...

If nurses continue to enter the workforce at the current rate, the U.S. would have about 4% fewer registered nurses than needed by 2025, according to a study in the October issue of Medical Care. That’s a “remarkable turnaround” compared with the nearly 30% shortage predicted a decade ago, the authors said. “We still project the nation will have a shortage of around 130,000 nurses by 2025, which is by no means a small number, but not the overwhelming shortage that we had once anticipated,” said co-author Peter Buerhaus, director of the Center for Interdisciplinary Health Workforce Studies at...

At its October meeting, the Kentucky Board of Nursing (KBN) voted to increase renewal fee by $15. The amended administrative regulation was filed with the Regulations Compiler on October 20 and will be published in the Administrative Register on December 1.  This fee increase will affect nurses in hospital facilities primarily through the renewal fee which will go from $40 to $55, plus $10 that is specified for specific programs in statute, for a total renewal fee of $65 per year. The Executive Director of KBN, Paula Schenk, RN, MPH anticipates that this rate increase will go into effect for the 2015 renewal period (September 15 - October 31, 2015).

If you have any questions, please contact Paula Schenk at KBN (502-429-3306) or Nathan Goldman, KBN general counsel (502-429-3309).
