Early Childhood Education

Early childhood education and pre-K programs embrace the crucial stages of brain development in children that when ignored, put children at risk for entering the public school system with an avoidable early learning deficit that will hamper their ability to learn and succeed in school and in life. Almost 90 percent of brain development occurs before a child is old enough to enter kindergarten, but many families cannot afford quality early education programs.

Nursing Crisis

As the largest population in history moves toward retirement and increased medical demands, Tennessee is facing a nursing shortage. Tennessee is projected to need an additional 35,300 registered nurses by the year 2020, without which only 53% of need will be met. Currently, Tennessee’s schools of nursing are operating at capacity. Qualified nursing candidates cannot be admitted, compounding the shortage problem.
