Nursing Profession Blog: New Nurses Continue Education While Waiting on Jobs

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, February 23rd, 2012

Because “older” nurses are delaying retirement, fewer positions are opening for new grads and others are holding out for the jobs they really want within the nursing profession. So what does this mean for nurse recruitment?nursing profession

Some new nurses are staying in school longer to boost their chances of getting hired. Bachelor degrees are starting to become preferred in some areas. Many associate degree programs partner with universities to help students pursue higher degrees. Wise new nurses are getting certified in specialty areas to increase their expertise and chances of being recruited and hired. This is all good news for nurse recruiters since new nurses are entering the field with a higher level of education.
