tensions with Japan congressional carping at the Federal Reserve even new allegations of sexual impropriety by the president all these developments and more are being blamed for the dollars puzzling decline on foreign cur rency markets Economists are scrambling for explanations because the green backs weakness defies basic eco nomic principles The dollar should not be falling at a lime when the

a backlog of people trying to finish requirements students have difficulty even getting into a program according to the survey People have complained they were misled because once they were admitted to nursing school overcrowding prevented them from completing the required classes said Clyde Ingle Higher Education commissioner This is an untenable he said recently And I believe if the schools of nursing do not get this situation solved the General Assembly will be forced to solve it for The states 40 nursing schools offer a variety of programs rang ing from one to four years and more of study

nursing school there still is competition for clinical studies at hospitals and clinics Ingle said Dr Louise Hart head of the Indiana State Nurses Association blamed the backlog on a shortage of faculty to teach nursing cours es Theres also misunderstanding by students she said Once youre admitted to a pro gram doesnt mean youre auto matically admitted to clinicals and students are told that from the Hart said Hospitals are simply filled she said We have a concern and feel compassion for students in that backlog But we also know the realities in the Hart said the General Assembly should provide public universities with the funding necessary to attract advanceddegree nurses to teaching Right now schools cant com pete with hospitals Hospitals pay more to advanced she said Until we address this prob lem the backlog will The competition does not end with officials said There already are about reg istered nurses in the state and officials said hospitals are looking more and more
