In the news: ASU hacks 2009 semesters’ nurse enrollment

Stressed Out Nurses Weekly, November 10, 2008

Eighty seats that were once filled by aspiring nurses will be empty at Arizona State University (ASU) in Tempe, AZ, in 2009.

Officials say ASU is slashing enrollment for its nursing program as it awaits at least $25 million in budget cuts from the state. ASU, which depends on state funding for about a quarter of its budget, will cut 40 students from each of two campuses. The cuts will not apply to students currently enrolled at ASU. 

The anticipated budget cuts are in addition to $30 million in cuts the college previously made due to dropping state revenues and the slow economy.

ASU also plans on cutting at least 200 faculty members and increasing some class sizes. The college will encourage departments and schools to find other methods of bringing in revenue.
