RN Programs in Wisconsin

Home > RN Programs in Wisconsin

Wisconsin will have more new jobs for registered nurses in the coming years than any other occupation, as the state faces a rising nursing shortage due to aging baby boomers, a growing need in health care, and a lack of capacity in nursing schools due to lack of nurse faculty. The U.S. Department of Workforce Development projects a shortage of 10,000 health care workers in Wisconsin by 2012, and 26,110 more registered nurses by 2014. Unfortunately, despite looming nursing shortages, Wisconsin's nursing schools are forced to turn away many qualified registered nursing applicants each year due to a shortage of Nurse Educators and clinical facilities. There are also long waiting lists at Wisconsin technical colleges for students wanting to earn an associate degree in nursing-several years long at some schools. Large numbers of faculty are reaching retirement age and graduate programs in nursing must prepare the nurse educators for the next generation of nurses. 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 Wisconsin'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 Nursing Master's degree.
