For large institutions that formerly provided their own training programs, the cooperation and consolidation afforded by the Consortium have tremendously reduced their workloads. However, the Consortium has proved equally valuable to small facilities that were previously unable to provide even minimal didactic emergency nursing education. With no end to the nursing shortage in sight, the Portland Area Emergency Nursing Consortium has proved to be a very successful model for meeting our community-wide educational needs.
