WHICH STATES WILL NEED
MOST IN 2013?
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that job growth in the healthcare sector was outpacing growth from 2011, accounting for one out of every 5 new jobs created this year. About 75% of those healthcare jobs are (and will be) in nursing.
2015 the U.S. Department of Health projects that 400,000 new nurses will be needed just to fill vacancies left by retirees.
2020 the U.S. Government predicts that it will be short between 800,000 and one million new and replacement nurses.
WHERE WILL THE JOBS BE?
According to Bureau of Labor statistics. the Registered Nursing workforce will be the top U.S. occupation in terms of job growth through 2020 and is expected to grow from 2.74 million nurses in 2010 to 3.45 million in 2020. As the demand for nurses to fill positions theoretically outstrips supply, in which state will you be most needed?

The institute of Medicine released a report which called for 80% more baccalaureate-prepared nurses in the workforce and doubling the population of nurses with doctoral degrees. The problem at hand: There aren't enough nurses qualified to teach as many nursing students as could be available or lead teams of medical professionals as administration and/or nurse practitioners.
