RN Programs in Arizona

Home > RN Programs in Arizona

Astudy by the Arizona Healthcare Workforce Data Center conducted in 2008 estimates the state will need an additional 49,000 registered nurses by 2017 to keep pace with Arizona's growth and to replace nurses who retire or quit. The problem is especially acute in Arizona due to the state's rapid growth and a $3 billion-plus hospital construction boom that will add nearly 3,000 beds over the next few years. Arizona's nursing shortage is widespread with 12 of 15 counties experiencing below-average nursing levels. Arizona's mild winters draw thousands of "Snowbirds" from colder states each year which gives rise to plentiful employment opportunities year round for permanent staff as well as Travel Nurses. Nurses and Allied Healthcare professionals will find jobs plentiful, the climate appealing in its diversity, affordable housing and good wages in Arizona. In Arizona, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. Nurse Educators, BSN prepared nurses, home health nurses, and all advanced practice specialties -clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists-are in high demand in both rural and urban areas.

 

In order to meet the increasingly complex demands of today's health care environment, many healthcare agencies prefer or require a minimum of a bachelor's degree for their nursing staff, so now is the perfect time for LPN's to enroll in an online LPN to RN program, or LPN to BSN degree program, for RN's to take an online RN-BSN degree completion program, or RN to MSN bridge program, and for BSN nurses to earn a MS in Nursing degree.
