RN Programs in North Carolina

Home > RN Programs in North Carolina

North Carolina has a shortage of nurses-a situation that is expected to continue as the state's elderly population grows. More nurses prepared at the baccalaureate level and above, and nurses with MSN degrees to serve as nursing faculty are in particularly high demand. In addition to faculty shortages, health care agencies throughout the state report significant nursing shortages in critical care, emergency rooms, operating rooms, and long-term care settings. "Despite the contraction of the job market, there is still a looming nursing shortage in North Carolina", (Tina Gordon, executive director of the N.C. Nurses Association- May, 2009). By 2020 the USA will have 1 million fewer registered nurses than it needs, and a potential shortage of 32,000 registered nurses in North Carolina, according to areport by the N.C. Center for Nursing. 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. North Carolina's elderly population will double by 2020, creating huge demands for both highly skilled nurses, nursing assistants, and allied health workers. In North Carolina 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.

 

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.
