Missouri continues to have a nursing shortage with nurse vacancy rates is at 9.5 percent, andas as high as 17 percent in rural areas. 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. Missouri projects a three-fold increase in nursing vacancies by 2020 following national trends. There is a critical shortage of BSN nurses in the state of Missouri which is exacerbated by the scarcity of BSN programs and/or BSN completion programs in the Northwest and North Central Missouri regions."We are facing a critical shortage of health care workers in the state of Missouri today," Gov. Jay Nixon said during a visit to Kansas City May 29, 2009, "these are high paying, high demand careers in which motivated students willing to go the extra mile are necessary to stand up to the training".79 of Missouri's 114 counties are currently classified as health-professional shortage areas that do not meet federal guidelines. Generally, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. In addition, all four advanced practice nursingspecialties-clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists-will be in high demand, particularly in medically underserved areas such as inner cities and rural areas.

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.
