On October 8, the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education released an evaluation report on its groundbreaking Accelerating Interprofessional Community-Based Education and Practice Initiative. This two-year project focused on designing models of interprofessional community-based education and practice, using a standardized approach across 16 sites, advanced practice nurse-led health teams, community partners, and broad engagement with students. This initiative demonstrated that new models of academic-community partnerships can impact patient's health status, improve provider satisfaction, and potentially reduce the cost of health care.
On October 8, the Council of Graduate Schools released a new report titled Graduate Enrollment and Degrees: 2008 to 2018, which presents statistics on trends in graduate applications and enrollment by all fields. Based on responses from 589 institutions, this year's survey found that graduate enrollments increased overall (2.1%) in Fall 2018 with sharper increasing in first-time enrollment rates for students from minority backgrounds, including Hispanic/Latino (6.8%), Black/African American (3.5%), Asians/Pacific Islander (6.2%), and American Indian/Alaska Native (8.3%) graduate students.
