Actions to meet the projected increasing population and commensurate health care demands in the western and southern portions of the Northern Virginia Region:
3a. GMU and NVCC must develop collaborative plans for a joint Nursing and Allied Health training center, located in Prince William County, Western Fairfax County and/or Loudoun County to serve the requirements of an expanding population and corresponding expanding health care demands in this vibrant portion of the region.
3b. In order for a joint Nursing and Allied Health training center to be a reality, funding requirements must be defined by the educational institutions and a funding strategy must be developed in collaboration with the Northern Virginia health care industry (ambulatory, inpatient, and long term), business leaders (Fairfax Chamber, Loudoun Chamber, Northern Virginia Technology Council, Roundtable etc.), public officials (local, state and federal elected representatives) and economic development entities together with the educational institutions.
