Nevada's nursing facilities are being hampered by a shortage of nurses.
And the schools that train nurses are hampered by a lack of teachers.
To teach nurses, a professor must have a degree higher than the student.
For example, someone teaching nurses at the baccalaureate level would need a master's degree.
Educators training nurses at the master's degree level would need at least a doctorate.
But there may be help in a 710-thousand-dollar grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
The three-year grant will help fund an accelerated nursing doctoral program through master's degree nursing programs at U-N-L-V and the University of Nevada, Reno.
U-N-L-V offers the only nursing P-H-D program in Nevada.
