Rhode Island is in the midst of a nursing shortage that is expected to intensify as nurses and baby boomers age and the need for health care grows. On March 6, 2009, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the healthcare sector of the American economy is continuing to grow, despite steep job losses in nearly all major industries. 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. 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. Recent projections indicate Rhode Island faces a projected shortage of more than 1,800 registered nurses by 2010 and a further projected shortage of 6,500 registered nurses by the year 2020. The demand for RN's and other health care workers will only continue rising as the 78 million "baby boomers" 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. Nurse Educators, BSN prepared nurses, home health nurses, and all advanced practice specialties — clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and nurse anesthetists — are professions that are sought after 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.
