North Texas Region
The North Texas region has joined the Texas Nursing Resource Center with the launching of the North Texas Nursing Resource Center which includes the Centralized Clinical Placement Center and Faculty Resource Center. The North Texas initiative is a partnership with the North Texas Consortium of Schools of Nursing and Practice Partners and the Dallas-Fort Worth Hospital Council Foundation Workforce Center.
This project is supported by a grant from the Texas Team through Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center and the Texas Workforce Commission as well as an additional grant from the Perot Foundation. This funding has made it possible for the hospitals and schools of nursing to participate in this project at no cost through December 2011.
The North Texas region has over 40 hospitals and 15 schools of nursing participating in the project as of July 2010.
