The Nurses Educational Collaborative (NEC) is a 4-year-old collaborative effort linking the Division of Continuing Education at Greenfield Community College (GCC) with the Division of Health Education and Training at Franklin Medical Center (Greenfield, Massachusetts). The program's goal is to provide accessible, affordable, continuing education courses for both registered and licensed practical nurses at times and locations convenient for working nurses. Course offerings are recommended by an advisory council of 25 nurses and nurse administrators who conduct needs assessments and meet twice yearly to develop their recommendations. The staff of the NEC includes five part-time administrative workers, two part-time clerical workers, and part-time teachers hired as needed. GCC handles the administrative functions and the Franklin Medical Center provides information and assistance on more substantive matters. All money supporting NEC comes from student tuition, and neither the Medical Center nor GCC charges NEC for the time their staffs spend working for the organization. The NEC offers approximately 25 courses during each academic semester and 12 courses during the summer, with classes meeting on campus, at the Medical Center, and other places throughout the community. Although the advisory council is charged with formally evaluating the program, to date only informal feedback has been obtained. This feedback shows that NEC offers a high quality product at a low price. (LAL)
