Greetings TONE Members,
The TONE Board of Directors has approved proposed changes to the TONE Bylaws which were submitted by the TONE Bylaws Committee. The primary purpose of the proposed changes is to align TONE’s bylaws with those of AONE by adding an article that provides a means to request a performance review of directors and officers.
The TONE Board of Directors respectfully submits these proposed changes to the TONE Membership for your vote.
The proposed changes are available on the website for your review as of March 1, 2015. A 15 day voting window will open on April 1 and close on April 15, 2015.
You can view the proposed
changes here. You can view the Bylaws incorporating the proposed changes here.

Thank you for your continued support of TONE and our community of Nursing leaders.

  • TONE Bylaws have been updated and approved and are now available here! 

  • PODCAST Listen to one of our TONE Members, Jan Jones-Schenk discuss the nursing crisis in Texas and what WGU Texas is doing to respond to it.

    According to the Texas Nursing Workforce Shortage Coalition, the demand for full-time registered nurses in Texas exceeds supply by 22,000. The gap is estimated to reach a 70,000 nurse shortage in this state by 2020 as working nurses, averaging 46 years old, retire. In fact, Texas could lose more than 40 percent of its working nurses in the next ten years. Despite that, Texas nursing schools turned away more than 11,000 qualified applicants in 2010, primarily due to lack of faculty and capacity.
