RN Programs in Oklahoma

Home > RN Programs in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has a shortage of nurses- especially in rural areas- and it's a situation that is expected to continue as the state's elderly population grows. While other employers may export jobs or reduce their workforces during economic downturns, hospital jobs remain local and vital. Unlike other industries and services, the economy does not drive the number of people who need health care. Estimates currently 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.By 2012, Oklahoma is expected to have a shortage of more than 3,000 nurses if current trends continue. The demand for registered nurses and other health care workers will continue to rise as the 78 million "baby boomers" continue to age and require additional health care. Educators and health planners see the growing demand for nurses not only as a need for additional personnel but also for additional education, with more nurses prepared in baccalaureate programs that emphasize leadership, patient education, case management, and care across a variety of acute care and outpatient settings.

 

In Oklahoma, 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.
