Nursing Schools State Directory

Across the country, nurses are in demand to fill vital roles within hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities. The nursing shortage has been impacted by an aging Baby Boomer population that not only requires more nurses to provide medical care, but is also experiencing a large number of vacancies due to this generation reaching the age of retirement.

Location within the U.S. defines the types of nurses most needed in that state or region. Large populations of geriatric patients in Florida, Arizona and Southern California require more nurses that specialize in geriatric, palliative or specialized care with diabetic patients. Alaska, Indiana and Kansas offer incentives for nurses that specialize in the care of rural populations and several states are seeking nurses with experience in Informatics or electronic health records. Nurse educators are especially needed throughout the country to fill empty positions and provide the highest level of nursing education possible to current nursing students.

Nursing schools, such as Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, are helping to fill these vacancies with accelerated programs to help a current RN obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Many universities, such as University of Nebraska, have programs designed to assist students rapidly complete the requirements for a second Bachelor degree in nursing or feature a fast-track Bachelor's to Master's or Doctorate, like the University of Utah.

From scholarships and awards to the best hospitals and nursing schools in a state or region, the choices ahead of an RN, LPN, Nurse Practitioner or other specialized nurse are countless.
