The Academic Progression in Nursing Grant, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, has developed the Consortium to Advance Baccalaureate Nursing Education in Texas (CABNET), a multi-focused statewide model to assist all RN to BSN programs in the state to increase the number of associate degree prepared nurses graduating each year from1,826 in AY2010- 2011 to 4,200 in AY 2013-2014, a 230% increase. Statewide commitment to achieve the grant goals has been generated from both education and practice sectors.

A commitment to increase ethnic and gender diversity in nurse graduates is also a priority within this initiatives.  A mentoring program has been developed to assist RNs to confront barriers.
