Wyoming Nursing Schools
Despite rising unemployment rates and a weakening economy, Wyoming continues to struggle with a critical nursing shortage due to multiple factors, including a population that is aging even faster than the rest of the nation, the loss of nursing and healthcare staff to neighboring states, and a lack of capacity in nursing schools due to faculty shortage. By the year 2020, Wyoming is projected to have the worst nursing shortage in the nation, with a 63% shortfall. Unfortunately, despite looming nursing shortages, Wyoming'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. 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 Wyoming's rural areas to provide primary care for an increasing aging population with chronic diseases.
Nurses With Advanced Degrees In Demand
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.
