New Hampshire Nursing Schools

Home > New Hampshire Nursing Schools

Estimates say New Hampshire needs 672 new nurses annually until 2014 just to fill vacant positions. One of the reasons for the increasing shortage is that, as the current nurse workforce ages, a growing proportion of those nurses will begin to retire, with a sharp increase around the year 2015. As baby boomers age and require more health-care services than ever before, the number of nurses entering the field isn't anticipated to meet the demand.Unfortunately New Hampshire'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. The need for nurses with master's and doctoral degrees to fill faculty positions in New Hampshire is critical, as more students are applying to nursing programs, but not enough teachers are available to meet the need. 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. 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 great demand throughout New Hampshire, particularly in medically underserved 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.
