Delaware Nursing Schools

Home > Delaware Nursing Schools

An explosive growth in Delaware's retiree population, an aging nursing workforce, and a severe shortage of Nurse Educators are all factors that contribute to Delaware needing more registered nurses and allied health professionals than it has. That shortage is expected to become more severe, according to a report by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration, which states that the state will be facing a shortage of more than 3,000 nurses by 2010, and by 2020, Delaware will have only half the number of nurses and allied health care workers that it needs.Nursing schools in the state lack the capacity to produce enough new nurses to plug the gaps, with most maintaining large waiting lists for admission even as demand for nurses continues to grow. "The major bottleneck used to be the clinical sites," said Jo Ann Baker, a family nurse practitioner and chair of the nursing department at the Delaware Tech campus in Dover. "But the second bottleneck is just trying to get them into the science classes." Delaware Tech expects the number of students unable to access the science courses will more than double in the next five years. This impacts LPNs seeking to train to be RNs particularly hard, especially as current economic conditions are spurringhealthcare employers to hire RN'srather than LPN's. Additionally, nurses and allied health workers who can communicate with the growing number of Spanish-speaking immigrants are in great demand due to the large growth of Delaware's Hispanic population in recent years. Even in this challenging economy, the Delaware health care industry continues to hire new graduates at an average starting salary of over $50,000.
