Nurse Recruitment News: Yes, There Is a Nursing Shortage!

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, September 5th, 2013

A recent study by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that nearly 600,000 new nursing positions will need to be created by 2018 to address the current nursing shortage, and the Bureau of Health Professions estimates that 90% more nurses will need to be graduated to meet that demand.

According to Vanderbilt University, 4 out of every 10 nurses in the U.S. are over the age of 50 and will retire in the next ten years, worsening the existing nursing shortage.
