The UNC School of Nursing has
turned to active recruitment and
marketing efforts to combat a drop
in enrollment and to alleviate the
statewide nursing shortage in the long
term, said John Becton, director of
the school's public relations and
Since 1982, statewide enrollment in
nursing education programs has
dropped 21 percent, Becton said. This
reflects a drop in the number of nurses
in the N.C. workforce, he said.
Becton said recruitment and mar
keting techniques became necessary

Student-faculty task force to discuss future residents, special programs for historic dormitories
By MARK FOLK
Although UNC has received a $2.7
million cost estimate for renovations
of Old East and Old West Residence
Halls, the task force established to
answer unresolved questions about
the halls hasn't met yet.
Residence Hall Association Pres
ident Kelly Clark said Monday that
he is planning to meet with University
Housing Director Wayne Kuncl
today to discuss who should serve on
the student-faculty task force.

because of the decrease in the college
age population and the increase in
career opportunities for women. A
contributing factor is the general need
for nurses because of the growing
elderly population and the AIDS
epidemic, he said.
Part of the school's recruiting
program targets men and older
students and presents them with an
image of nursing as a profession with
many career options, Becton said.
"We are seeing what we think are
hopeful signs from the standpoint of
enrollment,'' he said. "There seem to
be students transferring to our school
from other schools in the state. And

and distributed a manual to the
contras outlining more effective ways
of killing. He also said Congress has
given $100 million to the contras.
"I don't think I'm exaggerating
when I say that these are hired guns
(for the United States)," he said.
Although the contras admitted to
ambushing Ben Under and the two
Nicaraguans, no one in the Reagan
Administration has spoken out
against the murders, Under said.
"They haven't said anything about
it because it was not an accident or
an exception, but the essence of the
contra way," he said. "They've tried
"We need to really get on the ball,"
Clark said. "Hopefully, we can get
the new task force together and meet
within the next two weeks." '
The task force's main purpose will
be deciding who should live in Old
East and Old West, Clark said, as
well as what kind of special programs,
if any, should be planned for them.
"Since the architectural firm has
already come up with the renovation
parts of the buildings, our main job
will be to decide what will go on in
them," Clark said. "Hopefully, we will

"Labor statistics are projecting a
49 percent increase in the number of
jobs for nurses, regardless of the
shortage," Becton said. "It's making
the shortage worse, but it's also being
used as an attraction to the job."
N.C. Memorial Hospital is also
actively recruiting nurses, although
the statewide and nationwide shor
