  • University of Texas School of Nursing at Houston | Q & A with Dean Starck
    ve said that the new School of Nursing and Student Community Center building will make it possible to design innovative ways to address the nursing shortage What are some of your thoughts or plans about these innovations I m looking forward to the upgrade of information technology We ll have the latest in computers and equipment For the past two years we ve had a pilot program in Fort Bend County at the George Foundation Library and at the University of Houston campus at Cinco Ranch While our faculty were here teaching in our classrooms the students were able to see the lectures there We were able to accommodate a greater number of students There were also other benefits for the students they didn t have to drive to the Texas Medical Center which saves driving time and parking costs And they were closer to their children who were attending school in that area Technology gives us the capability to expand our programs All the feedback so far is that the program has been very successful We had the first graduates this year In an even newer program we ll take someone with a bachelor s degree in some other field and put them through an accelerated program They ll finish in three semesters what usually takes five semesters We chose 10 students and the nursing school at Galveston chose 10 This is the first time that two UT nursing schools have collaborated on a program like this We had a terrific pool of applicants We had 1 300 applicants for 130 slots in the regular program and 70 people qualified for the 10 slots in the accelerated program We have the cream of the crop We re limited in expanding the number of students without hiring additional faculty members We had 25 applicants for faculty positions and we hired seven new faculty but now we re at the end of our money We hope the state and private donors in the community will help us get more The State Board of Nursing requires one faculty member for every 10 students because they need supervision during their clinical training In some areas the ratio needs to be even lower For example we need one faculty member for every three students when they re working with tiny neonatal babies The new building will have expanded facilities for nursing skills labs and patient rooms How will this enhance nursing education We deliberately held off on buying new equipment for the nursing skills labs until we moved to the new building Students are beginning to tell us that our equipment is not the same as the equipment in the hospitals Now in the new building we ll have state of the art equipment That includes manikins who even talk and tell you what s wrong For instance a manikin can be programmed to be an asthma patient and say I can t breathe in a hoarse whisper The students will have a chance
