On November 12, the GNLC hosted its 3rd annual Doctoral Symposium: Nursing Leadership through Policy Development and Educational Advancement at Georgia State University.
Also in 2016, the GNLC produced its first report using the data from the survey nurses complete when they renew their licenses to practice.
In spring 2014, GNLC collected data from schools with doctoral programs in nursing that are based in Georgia, requesting enrollment numbers and student diversity information from the 2010-2011 academic year to the 2013-2014 academic year.
