Nursing Shortage
You’ve likely heard about the “nursing shortage” for years now, and perhaps you think it’s been resolved. However, registered nurses are still at the top of the list when it comes to employment growth.

The median age of nurses is 46. More than 50% of the nursing workforce is close to retirement.

America is seeing vast increases in the number of people over 65. This age group has many medical and health needs, and will put a strain on our health system.

Recent reforms in healthcare will give millions of people access to the healthcare system. More nurses and health professionals are needed in response.

These factors, combined with an anticipated strengthening of the economy, will create a renewed critical shortage for nurses.
