DEMAND FOR NURSES RISING IN US

Rate this Entry

by Chris Musillo


Nursing demand in the US has been negligible in the last few years. Fewer nurses have been retiring and facilities' nursing needs have been stagnate. As a result facilities' demand for nurses has been flat since the start of the recession. A recent survey says that it appears that this dormant period for nursing needs is over.


As demand for nurses rises, medical practices are paying more to hire them, UBM Medical's Physician's Practice 2012 Staff Salary Survey suggests.



Nurses and nurse managers saw average salary increases of 4 percent and 12 percent. Registered nurses posted a 6.6 percent vacancy rate in 2011, up from 4 percent in 2010. Hospitals had 950 RN job openings at the end of 2011in one market, Cincinnati. Trends are likely similar across the US.



Foreign-trained nurses traditionally filled these needs but the twin-killing engine of retrogression and the recession has decimated the ranks of foreign-trained nurses.



Will the rebounding economy lead to a sensible immigration policy for soon-to-be badly needed nurses? That remains to be seen.

    The advantage to getnitg your LPN first is that after a year of school you can earn better money than you would from most other jobs while you are continuing your schooling. Many community colleges offer a ladder or step program where you go through a specialized LPN training and get your certificate. This enables you to take the state boards then the next year you will automaatically be a second year RN student. If you enter one of these programs it will help you decide if you like nursing enough to continue and you won't have wasted that first year if you decide not to continue. An LPN can earn as much as 40,000 dollars a year depending on the area of the country.An RN can earn twice as much or more depending on her level of education. It may be possible to earn 100 dollars an hour in the short term working for an agency that will send you out on very hard cases or to institutions that have very difficult working environments but it would be very rare. Many RNs in big city hospitals can earn 40 dollars an hour working in specialty units. Whatever you decide,if you become a nurse you will always be able to find a job,anywhere you choose to live. Good luck!
