Vermont continues to struggle with a nursing shortage that is expected to intensify as Find
Schools
Now
nurses and baby boomers age and the need for health care grows. This is particularly troubling as more than three-quarters of practicing nurses in Vermont are over 45, and a recent survey indicates 55 percent of nurses intended to retire by 2020, the majority of whom are nurse managers. The most critical factor contributing to the nursing shortage in Vermont and across the country is the limited number of masters and doctoral prepared nurses to serve as faculty. Unfortunately Vermont's nursing schools are forced to turn away over three times as many qualified registered nursing applicants as they admit each year due to a shortage of Nurse Educators. The state has created several financial incentives for nurses to pursue graduate studies, including loan repayment programs for those who agree to serve as nurse educators and faculty in the state.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 BSN 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 in high demand - especially in rural areas to provide primary care for an increasing aging population with chronic diseases.

 

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.

Average Nursing Base Salaries:

Nursing Assistant: $24,021- $29,303 Licensed Practical Nurse: $35,933 - $43,300
RN Staff Nurse: $55,940- $67,906 Nurse Practitioner: $76,095 - $89,692
