What’s Causing the Nurse Shortage
December 12, 2017
The U.S. nurse shortage is the worst it has ever been. By 2030, the U.S. will have over one million nurse job openings. The cause of the nursing shortage can be attributed to the increase of patients and the demand for more nurses. Added to this is the growth of the health care industry coupled with the high turnover of new nurses.
The following infographic shows why the U.S. has a strong demand for RNs and why we can’t produce enough nurses to keep up that demand.
