RN Programs in Kansas

Home > RN Programs in Kansas

Like most states, Kansas is temporarily experiencing a slight reprieve in the nursing shortage due to economic conditions that are driving retirement age nurses to postpone retirement and bringing experienced nurses who left the profession back to work, making jobs for new grad nurses more difficult to find. With most of the nurses in the state are in their upper 40s and 50s, the 129 hospitals in Kansas are going tobe scrambling to find enough nurses once the economy starts to improve and those nurses who stayed on for economic reasons leave. Meanwhile, universities in Kansas are turning away hundreds of qualified nursing students because of a lack of nurse educators, andthe nursing faculty shortage is only expected to worsen as an aging faculty workforce transitions into retirement. Furthermore, future projections suggest the state's aging population will increase demand for health care services, particularly in long term care settings.

Kansas has a great need for additional Nurse Practitioners and Nurse Midwives to provide primary care to underserved rural and urban areas, and for Nurse Educators. In order to meet the increasingly complex demands of today's health care environment, many hospitals and other health care employers that don't already require a BSN degree for new hires have established "BSN preferred" policies, so now is the perfect time for LPN's to enroll in an online LPN to RN/BSN program, for RN's to take an online RN-BSN degree completion program, or RN to MSN bridge program, and for BSN nurses to pursue a MS in Nursing degree. Accredited campus-based nursing schools in Kansas are listed below.

Average Nursing Base Salaries:

Nursing Assistant: $22,780 - $27,792 Licensed Practical Nurse: $34,049 - $41,029
RN Staff Nurse: $53,229 - $64,603 Nurse Practitioner: $72,299- $85,219
