Russel Hicks, president of Martin, Fletcher, a leading healthcare recruitment company, was appointed to the newly formed Texas Woman’s University College of Nursing’s Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Advisory Council. The first class of Doctor of Nursing Practice students will be admitted to TWU in June 2008.

“I am approaching my role on this council from two points of view. I am a community member and read about the nursing shortage and realize what that means for my neighbors, local hospitals and physician groups. Beyond that, though, I am a healthcare consultant. I speak with healthcare leaders across the country on a daily basis about their recruitment challenges and understand the exponential impact this program, and others like it, have on strengthening the pipeline of qualified nurse practitioners through additional nurse educators,” said Russel Hicks, president of Martin, Fletcher and DNP Advisory Council member.

Nursing educators are a valuable commodity and may not be there to sustain future educational demands. Like many professions, the retirement of the baby boomers and less students seeking advanced degrees impacts the available pool of educators. The addition of 2-year associate programs, “second degree” programs and baccalaureate nursing programs have helped curtail the national nursing shortage, but with this growth one key issue remains – who will teach the nursing students?

The DNP program at TWU is one of about 200 DNP programs offered nationally that hopes to answer that question. Different from a Ph.D. in nursing, the Doctor of Nursing Practice program focuses on advanced clinical practice allowing nurse practitioners to expand and enhance clinical care and prepare themselves as expert clinical faculty for educational institutions.

The DNP Advisory Council includes TWU faculty and key community healthcare leaders who can provide expertise based on their insight to the needs of clinical stakeholders and/or the degree focus. It is the council’s responsibility to provide needed information to enhance the experiences of the students and help guide the program.

“Mr. Hicks represents the healthcare consumers in the community. While not a healthcare provider, his knowledge of the healthcare industry and experience with management in this arena are invaluable as we develop a program that we want to be aligned with future healthcare needs,” said Dr. Caryl Mobley, associate dean of nursing at TWU’s Dallas-Parkland campus.

TWU College of Nursing graduates more nurses annually than any other program in Texas and is recognized nationally for the quality and volume of nursing professionals in the program. Of those who received a baccalaureate degree, 92.44 percent have a first-time pass rate on their licensing exam and those graduating with a Master’s degree pass their advance practice license exams at nearly 100 percent.

“TWU’s track record of educating top nursing professionals is certainly an indication of what we can expect from their newest educational offering. I am honored to have a chance to give back to the healthcare community by serving on their DNP Advisory Council,” Hicks added.
