Abstract

Faculty at an urban public university collaborated with the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and 7 area hospitals to implement an accelerated baccalaureate nursing program, which was unique in not requiring a previous baccalaureate degree. The authors describe the program, cohorts, and select student outcomes. The focus is on lessons learned by implementing this collaborative endeavor within a context of economic change.
