RN Programs in Utah

Home > RN Programs in Utah

Utah is experiencing the third most severe nursing shortage in the country with estimates that over 1,000 Registered Nurses are presently needed to fill vacant positions in the state. The most critical factor contributing to the nursing shortage in Utah and across the country is the limited number of masters and doctoral prepared nurses to serve as faculty. Current estimates 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. Rapid changes in health care and technology require the nursing profession to continually expand its role. 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 — especially in rural 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.
