RN Programs in Maine
As the aging baby boom generation begins to place additional pressures on the health care system and the nursing workforce of the same generation begins to retire, the worsening nursing shortage has the potential to seriously impact the delivery of health care in Maine, one of the most rural states in the nation. The average age of a U.S. nurse is 47, and because more nurses retire than graduate each year, that age is only going up. Yet as baby boomers approach retirement, students are finding themselves turned away from attending nursing schools by the thousands because of a shortage of nursing faculty.Maine is not immune to the national nursing shortage, and anticipates a statewide nursing shortage of 5,200 during the next 15 years. Over a quarter of Maine's population live in a primary care health professional shortage area.Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Midwives, Registered Nurses, and Allied Health Care providers are in great demand to offer care in Maine's urban and rural areas.
Nurses With Advanced Degrees In Good Demand
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 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.
