New Mexico Nursing Schools

Home > New Mexico Nursing Schools

New Mexico, like the rest of the nation, is experiencing a nursing shortage that is expected to worsen over the next few years. Despite rising unemployment rates and a weakening economy, current, conservative estimates still predict that in the next decade the U.S. will begin to experience one of the worst shortages of registered nurses in the nation's history. Unlike nurse shortages in the past, a rapidly aging population, a subsequent increased demand for RNs, plus an aging nursing workforce drive this nurse shortage, unparalleled in American nursing.By 2020 the USA will have 1 million fewer registered nurses than it needs. At the same time, the HRSA predicts that New Mexico will only be able to meet 64 percent of its demand for nurses. 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. In New Mexico RNs with at least a bachelor's degree (BSN) will have better job prospects than those without a bachelor's. Nurse Educators, 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 New Mexico.

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.
