RN Programs in Minnesota
Nurses and and allied health personnel remain in high demand in Minnesota, particularly in the rural areas where a great need exists for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and home-health nurses to give primary care. Health care is a growing industry, producing 14 million jobs. This industry, alone, will generate 3 million new jobs between 2006 and 2016 - more than any other industry. The American Health Care Association estimates the the nursing shortage will explode in coming years and more than 1 million nurses will be needed nationwide by 2020. A National Center for Health Workforce Analysis projects Minnesota will need an additional 9,200 registered nurses by 2015.Like many other states, a shortage of nurse educators and classroom space result in significant numbers of qualified applicants being turned away from nursing schools each year, and the nursing faculty shortage is only expected to worsen as the aging Minnesota nursing faculty workforce transitions into retirement.Aging nurses also are expected to soon contribute to the state's general nursing workforce shortage.Furthermore, future projections suggest the state's aging population will increase demand for health care services, particularly services offered in the long-term care setting. Minnesota has a good demand for additional Nurse Practitioners, Nurse Midwives, and Home Health Nurses to give 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 healthcare agencies prefer or require a minimum of a bachelor's degree for their nursing staff, 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.
