RN Programs in Maryland
With most of the nurses in Maryland being in their upper 40s and 50s, nurses will be in very short supplyonce the economy starts to improve and those nurses who stayed on for economic reasons leave. "The current nursing shortage has eased because of the economy, but the long-term shortage is as big as ever and will continue to grow if we don't do anything about it," said Jessica Jackson, a spokeswoman for the Maryland Hospital Association. 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 Maryland. 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. Despite the recession, acute-care and emergency-room nurses, nurses to work in long term care settings, Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Midwives, BSN prepared (or higher) Registered Nurses, and Allied Health Care providers remainin great demand throughout Maryland. With Maryland facing a shortage of 10,000 nurses in less than a decade isn't it time to enhace your nursing career options by earning an advanced nursing degree?
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.
