Nurse Recruitment Increases for Advanced Practice Nurses

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, March 19th, 2013

Rapid growth in jobs created for physician assistants and advanced-practice nurses is triggering a new round of nurse recruitment challenges for Wisconsin hospitals, according to a study by the Wisconsin Hospital Association.

Wisconsin hospitals reported a 55% increase in the number of advanced-practice nurses they employ, a 38% increase in certified registered nurse anesthetists and a 25% increase in physician assistants from 2009 to 2011.

The Hospital Association attributed the increases to increasing difficulty recruiting primary care physicians and also on the positive impact on health care quality of advanced-practice professionals.
