RN Programs in Virginia
Virginia faces a shortfall of 23,000 nurses by 2020 - about the same time baby boomer nurses will be retiring. Current, conservative estimates still predict that in the next decade the U.S. willbegin to experience one of the worst shortages of registered nurses in the nation's history.Unfortunately, despite looming nursing shortages, Virginia'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 and clinical facilities.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 in high demand - especially in Virginia's 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.
