Kentucky Nursing Schools

Home > Kentucky Nursing Schools

With most of the nurses in the state being in their upper 40s and 50s,nurses are likely to be in very short supply and in high demand for many years to come. The Kentucky Occupational Outlook 2014-2024 reports that health-related occupations are the fastest-growing occupations in Kentucky. Meanwhile, universities in Kentucky are turning away hundreds of qualified nursing students because of a lack of nurse educators, and the nursing faculty shortage is expected to worsen as an aging faculty workforce transitions into retirement. The occupational employment outlook for registered nurses is expected to grow 35 percent from 2014 to 2024.

 

Kentucky has a high demand for additional Nurse Practitioners and Nurse Midwives to give primary care to underserved rural and urban areas, and for Nurse Educators. Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists are also in high demand presently. 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 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.
