The Texas Board of Nursing (BON), in collaboration with nursing education stakeholders, created a plan for innovative models for nursing education programs designed to promote increased graduations from Texas professional nursing education programs. As part of our legislative charge in implementing, monitoring and evaluating innovation in nursing education programs, we will be posting best practices in nursing education on the Texas BON web site under the Nursing Education link. The purpose of the Board's focus on innovation is to help reach the state's goal of graduating 9700 professional nursing students by the year 2010 while maintaining quality education and staying above the 80% NCLEX pass rate.
