Connecticut's nursing shortage is reaching crisis levels. As thousands of positions go unfilled, more patients than ever require talented, dedicated care, according to "Code Blue: Calling All Nurses", a live, interactive town meeting held in2009, by PBS and Hartford Hospital, central Connecticut's leading tertiary medical center. Connecticut is a small state geographically, but it is the fourth most densely populated state in the nation.A report issued by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration states that by 2010, Connecticut will be short more than 11,000 registered nurses. And by 2020, that number is projected to double, leaving Connecticut with fewer than half the nurses it needs. State health and hospitals officials say the need for nurses in Connecticut is greater than all other health professionals combined, but other allied-health professionals such as physical therapists and radiology technicians are also in high demand. The demand for Nurses and healthcare professionals continues to grow. "The number of outpatient clinics, walk-in medical treatment centers, ambulatory surgical centers and H.M.O.'s, all of which employ nurses, has tremendously increased over the last few years", said the associate vice president for public affairs for the hospital association, Albert F. May.Connecticut's efforts to educate enough nurses to meet future demand are hampered by a severe shortage of Nurse Educators, and like other states, nursing schools in Connecticut have long waiting lists and have had to turn applicants away.

 

Nurse Educators, Nurse Practitioners, experienced acute-care and emergency-room nurses, and allied health professionals of every variety are all in high demand in Connecticut. According a report by HealthLeaders Media, nursing program graduates in Connecticut can generally expect a starting salary of around $50,000--not including overtime pay, which many employers offer, and most employers will pay for continuing nursing education programs such as online LPN-to-RN program, and RN to BSN degree programs.

Average Nursing Base Salaries:

Nursing Assistant: $26,342 - $32,138 Licensed Practical Nurse: $39,373 - $47,455
RN Staff Nurse: $61,553 - $74,706 Nurse Practitioner: $83,605 - $98,545
