IALN is a 501c3 corporation founded in 2004 which is committed to advancing Idaho’s nursing workforce. It provides support for nursing scholarship and the accurate collection of nursing workforce data. Since 2004, IALN has awarded over 1.1 million dollars in graduate and undergraduate nursing scholarships and research practice grants to students and nurses statewide. IALN’s scholarship giving strives to align itself with current workforce and market needs.
The future health of citizens and communities in Idaho is now more than ever connected to the role of the nurse. In consideration of this, the Idaho Alliance of Leaders in Nursing (IALN) seeks support for its nursing scholarship fund. To achieve this, IALN collaborates with nurses, businesses, and public and private partners statewide. Together with its sister organization, the Nurse Leaders of Idaho, a professional nursing leadership membership organization, it is a driving force for excellence in nursing in Idaho.
The most recent 2011 Idaho Nursing Overview Idaho published by the Idaho Department of Labor substantiates what nurses, colleges and universities and health care providers statewide are experiencing. The overview identifies an acute shortage of nurse educators and nurse practitioners statewide that is forecasted to continue on into the foreseeable future. This exacerbates the shortage of primary care providers in Idaho and threatens the quality and capacity of our undergraduate nursing programs.
- Having enough qualified nursing faculty available statewide strengthens our nursing programs and improves the competencies of its graduates.
- Nurse practitioners fill a critical need for primary care services in Idaho and often provide care in locations and settings where no other medical provider is available.
