The statistics that show a major nursing shortage is in our immediate future have been reported and proven time and time again. Both the rise of aging baby boomers and the age of current nurses will create a high demand in RN job openings. The United States Office of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts there will be 1.09 million job openings for nurses by the year 2024.
Despite this need, qualified applicants are being turned down by nursing programs across the country due to insufficient budgets and lack of faculty members. Nursing is one of the most demanding careers. Stressful working conditions, fewer opportunities for career growth, and wages not reflecting the work are a few examples of why nurses end up leaving the profession.
