3 current trends for nurses in Wisconsin

Posted by Brianna Neuser on 5/25/17 7:30 AM

The health care industry is in a constant state of change, and the nursing field is at risk of flatlining. The demand for medical care is rising, hospitals around the country are desperate for nurses, and Wisconsin is no exception.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts job outlook for Registered Nurses from now through 2024 will grow 16 percent, a much faster rate than average. Here in Wisconsin, we’re without a doubt facing an unprecedented shortage of registered nurses. Baby boomers are quickly approaching retirement and aging nurses are leaving the field in droves.

There’s a silver lining to this news, however, if you’re considering pursuing a nursing degree. Simply put, there’s no better time than now to enter this exciting field. Read on to see just how positive the outlook is for nurses with bachelor’s degrees in the next 10 years!

Now scratch the settler thing. Settler Number 1 is like a nurse with an ADN (Associate’s Degree in Nursing) and Settler Number 2 is like a nurse with a BSN (Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing).

Neither path is inherently superior; it just depends on what you want with regards to your career.
