Extractions: In January 2004, the Bernard Hodes Group released the results of a recent poll of 151 health care recruiters to determine turnover rates, cost-per-hire and vacancy rates for a range of health care professionals, including registered nurses. The survey found that the average RN turnover rate was 15.5%, the vacancy rate was 13.9% and the average RN cost-per-hire was $2,651, which is approximately 11% higher than the average cost for recruiting allied health workers. In the November/December 2003 issue of Health Affairs, Dr. Peter Buerhaus from Vanderbilt University and his colleagues found that over 100,000 new RNs were hired in 2002; the majority of which were foreign-born nurses and nurses over age 50 returning to the workforce in tough economic times. Though the new hires and a sharp increase in RN salaries are having a positive effect on the current workforce supply, Dr. Buerhaus cautions that the current nursing shortage is far from over and called for immediate federal attention to address the growing crisis, including setting national goals for annual nursing school enrollment increases.
Extractions: More than 50 Pennsylvania families who home school their children for religious reasons are using a little-known state law to force school districts out of the educational process. School districts tend to back off when parents cite Pennsylvania's recently passed Religious Freedom Protection Act, home schooling advocates say. But this year, school officials in Bristol Township and in western Pennsylvania have threatened to charge two of those families with truancy. The parents responded by suing them. Now, two lawsuits could test Pennsylvania's Religious Freedom Protection Act of 2002 and the state's home education law. The U.S. Constitution's First Amendment will also be in question in regards to home schooling in Pennsylvania, say home-schooling advocates. The underlying question is whether the state's home education regulations infringe upon the religious expression of families who home school their kids for religious reasons.

Extractions: In an effort to address the immediate concerns of the Colorado education community, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) introduced the Safe Communities-Safe Schools initiative in the fall of 1999. This project will consist of the following strategies that will be available to all school communities in Colorado: information about the Safe Communities-Safe Schools Model, technical assistance, publications, web site, information house, media campaign, and a long-term response plan. The SSCC seeks to stimulate discussion, collaboration and action against youth violence by bringing schools, police, youth-serving agencies, the judicial system, and other interested parties together in a statewide collaboration. The coalition, formed in 1994, involves more than 1,500 educators, police, and youth workers in activities and stimulates the creation of community-based violence prevention coalitions. It has assisted schools in developing new violence prevention programs and facilitated networking and information sharing among members through bimonthly forums, major conferences, training seminars, task groups, youth involvement, and in-depth consultation and technical assistance to schools and communities.
