A survey shows nursing programs admitted 2% more students this year than in 2007, the smallest annual increase since 2001. Data also show stagnant growth in enrollment and graduations for masters-level nursing programs. The findings may indicate that nursing schools have reached their enrollment capacity with existing faculties, said Fay Raines, president of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing, which conducted the survey.
