RN Programs in Idaho

Home > RN Programs in Idaho

Idaho is the 14th largest state in the U.S in terms of land mass, according to the U.S. Census. It has a low crime rate and an affordable cost of living out of all western states, and has has a diverse climate that ranges from cold harsh winters in the north to mild ones in the south. Much of the state is Federally owned land. The Rural Health Information Hub reports there are 40 hospitals in Idaho and 47 rural health clinics. Idaho has a serious need for nurses with advanced degrees to practice as nurse educators, nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists or nurse practitioners. Advanced practice nurses are most critically needed to give primary care in rural Idaho where populations have limited access to hospital care due to geography or weather. Nurses in rural and frontier settings must be familiar with the expert generalist role; they must be comfortable functioning with significant autonomy, increased responsibility for action and decision-making, and self-sufficiency in practice.

 

Idaho is highly rural and it is often difficult and inconvenient for residents to find access to programs in nursing. Like other states, a shortage of Nurse Educators and classroom space only worsen the problem.Distance delivery options help allieviate the shortage by offering a viable means of internal workforce development through accredited online LPN to RN/BSN programs, RN to BSN programs, and through online nursing master's degree programs. Now is the perfect time for nurses to advance their nursing education to fill the critical need for nurses with advanced degrees in Idaho.
