North Dakota aren't among them. North Dakota has a shortage of nurses, a situation that is expected to continue as the state's elderly population grows- especially in rural areas. The health care industry in North Dakota serves a multi-state region that includes rural Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Montana. Nursing workforce needs in this region are driven by a rural, aging citizenry that includes a significant American Indian population, the largest minority group in North Dakota. 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. 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 Dakota's elderly population will double by 2020, creating huge demands for both highly skilled nurses and nursing assistants. In North Dakota, 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 both rural and urban 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.
