Trends indicate that Texans will enter community colleges seeking the skills and competencies needed to survive in today’s highly technical work environments. Nursing and allied health occupations are expected to account for 54,500 of the projected 10.3 million jobs avaiIable in the Texas workforce in the year 2000. The educational trend prompted by the need for a quality workforce in Texas mandates that community colleges establish institutional goal priorities among major constituent groups to maintain program effectiveness. This study examined the current and preferred importance of institutional goals among four community college associate degree nursing constituent groups: advisory board members, college administrators, faculty, and final semester students.
