RN Programs in Nebraska

Home > RN Programs in Nebraska

Nebraska has a shortage of nurses and allied health workers that is most severe in small towns and rural areas, with 49 out of 93 Nebraska counties are classified as healthcare provider shortage areas presently, and that is expected to worsen as many RNs entering their fifties and sixties retire. The Nebraska Center for Nursing projects a 20 percent shortage of nurses in the state by 2020, with rural areas affected the most.Unfortunately Nebraska'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. UNMC College of Nursing reports that "up to 60% of qualified BSN applicants are turned away annually." The nursing faculty shortage couldn't come at a worse time. Baby boomers are aging, developing more chronic conditions that will cause their health-care needs to grow dramatically, which will require a larger and more highly educated nursing workforce. There is a critical shortage of BSN nurses in the state which is worsened by the faculty shortages as well as by geographical contraints that make it difficult for nurses in rural Nebraska to attend nursing schools.Generally, RNs with at least a bachelor's degree (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. BSN prepared nurses, home health nurses, and all advanced practice specialties -clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists-are in high demand throughout Nebraska, 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.
