With fewer than 600 nurses for every 100,000 residents, Nevada continues to struggle with a nursing shortage. "If we want to look at the public health-crisis issue, the nursing shortage has got to be put there as one of the top crises coming down the pike," according to Executive Director Bill Welch of The Nevada Hospital Association. 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. "The fact that we still don't have enough nursing faculty limits our ability to address the nursing shortage,'' said Lori Candela, graduate nurse track educator at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. "Combine that with the fact that one-third or more of all nursing faculty, nationally, are eligible to retire in the next five years. Looking forward, the issue is more grim.'' 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's a critical shortage of BSN nurses and nurse practitioners in the state which is worsened by the faculty shortages as well as by geographical contraints that make it difficult for nurses in rural Nevada 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 good demand throughout Nevada, 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.
