shortage is as real as it ever was, and is expected to worsen as many RNs entering their fifties and sixties retire. While the nursing shortage in Montana was less than 1 percent in 2005, it is estimated that that number will jump to 25 percent in 2020. There is a critical shortage of BSN nurses in the state which is exacerbated by the scarcity of nursing schools, availability to BSN programs and/or BSN completion programs in existing schools, and geographical contraints that make it difficult for nurses in rural Montana to attend nursing schools.Unfortunately Montana's nursing schools continue to have to turn away qualified applicants for the state's nursing programs because of a critical shortage of nurse educators, lack of clinical sites, and budget constraints.Montana is experiencing critcal shortages of nurses, physicians, dentists, pharmacists, and allied health technicians. Generally, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. Geriatric nurses, home health nurses, and all advanced practice specialties -clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists-are in good 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.
