Nursing remains one of the nation’s fastest growing occupations.‡ However, by 2020, there will be a shortage of 193K nurses.§ By 2030, an additional 1.1M nurses will reach retirement age. The annual cost of this nursing talent gap is estimated to be $121M.# Explore which locations in the U.S. are most affected by nursing shortages and how some health care organizations are providing nursing shortage solutions.
The United States could also see a shortage of nearly 120K physicians by 2030.** This puts increased pressure on organizations to meet the staffing demand for advanced practice nurses who can provide many of the same services as doctors.

Education Is a Solution
The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), the national voice for academic nursing, believes that education has a significant impact on the knowledge and competencies of the nurse clinician.†† They point out that in December 2017, the State of New York even signed a law requiring future RNs graduating from a NY ASN or ADN program to obtain a BSN within 10 years of initial licensure. The legislators stated that given “the increasing complexity of the American health care system and rapidly expanding technology, the educational preparation of the registered professional nurse must be expanded.”
