The nursing profession is one of the fast growing career fields and is looking like it is going to be unable to match the supply with the requisite demand in the near future. Three significant problems are contributing to the nursing shortage and they are:
- Increasing age of Baby Boomers
- 55% of current registered nurses are nearing retirement age
- The need for more BSN nurses to appropriately care for more complex patients
Due to the shortage of nurses being able to adequately meet the needs of the current and future workplace, many nurses today are showing signs of workplace fatigue and facilities are having low retention of nurses (Rosseter, 2014). Many nurses are citing the increased stress related to staffing shortages as reasons for why they are leaving the field. Multiple strategies have been identified to help alleviate the nursing shortage. The article by Rosseter addresses the issue of nursing student shortages by highlights the changes currently being made to NursingCAS. NursingCAS is a centralized nursing school and APRN school application database. It streamlines the ability of students to apply to school as well as to help inform them of other potential school sites which they may be desirable locations to attend school. The idea behind the process being that if we can make it easier to get willing student into open programs, we can increase enrollment and therefore the workforce.
