HEALTHCARE SECTORS IN SURGE FOR MORE NURSES

HEALTHCARE SECTORS IN SURGE FOR MORE NURSES

Current news bulletins around the United States pins an alarming signal regarding the shortage of nurses in the healthcare workforce.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, providers will have to spend more to recruit proficient employees while the nursing shortage continues through 2025, causing them to suffer on higher costs related to rising pharmaceutical prices and technological investments, intensified by decreasing reimbursement levels.

That’s why some hospitals are now offering big bonuses, free housing, and college tuition for employees and their children, just to recruit and retain nurses.

The American Nurses Association (ANA) already predicted back in 2014 that the US must produce 1.1 million nurses by 2022 to meet its demand in healthcare.

One analyst from Moody’s Investors Service report said, "An aging population, increased incidents of chronic disease and alternative employment options, such as nurse staffing and traveler agencies, drive increased demand. Although the supply of nurses is expected to improve with the expanded nurse training programs and increase in the number of eligible nurse educators, it will still take three to four years for the supply to meet expected demand."

On this issue, effective measures should be taken right now to create a stronger fortress in preventing this horrific scenario.

That’s why Erudite Nursing Institute™ is driving huge efforts to further prevent the effects of this issue.

With the high demand for nurses, the institute, in partnership with the US government and numerous health institutions, are in full force to provide high-quality, fast-track nursing educational programs and research to pace with an ever-changing world in line with technology advancements.

As a nursing educational institution, the goal to produce better, more engaged medical professionals in the near future, should not be compromised.
