Editor's Note

Rebecca Wiseman, PhD, RN, associate professor and chair of the University of Maryland School of Nursing at the Universities at Shady Grove, has been awarded a grant to establish the Maryland Nursing Workforce Center at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), according to an October 8 news release.

The $265,467 grant will fund the project over 2 years, during which Wiseman will ensure that Maryland is meeting the recommendation in the Institute of Medicine’s 2010 Future of Nursing report to improve collection methods of workforce data.

The Center will provide a centralized repository of data to use for:

  • projections of future nursing resource needs
  • understanding workforce diversity
  • planning for educational programs to meet current and future requirements
  • identifying geographical distribution of nursing resources
  • grant writing.

The Center also will help the state gather data in three key areas: faculty, pipeline, and practice.
