Major CUNY Response to Nursing Shortage

Responding to a report by the CUNY Nursing Task Force, Chancellor Matthew Goldstein announced on June 11 plans to add 30 full-time faculty to the University's nursing programs. This was one of several recommendations made by the Task Force, chaired by BMCC President Antonio Perez.

Calling CUNY "by far the leading provider of new registered nurses in New York," Goldstein indicated the report would provide a blueprint "to expand our nursing programs while improving their quality."

"BMCC students graduating with an Associate degree in nursing are walking into $55,000-a-year jobs," said Perez. "And senior and specialty nurses earn upwards of $100,000. We need to get the word out."

The Task Force report is available in full and in an executive summary on the CUNY website
