When you’re a nurse, a shortage can actually be an opportunity. 

You can take a nurse out of scrubs, but they just won’t stop trying to heal. Retired nurses can’t help themselves – you’ll find them substituting as school nurses, staffing flu shot clinics, they’ve even been caught bandaging bruised produce in the grocery store.

The number of retirees is growing rapidly – nearly 700,000 nurses are projected to leave the workforce by 2024. Which is a big number, particularly since total employment of RNs and APRNs will increase by a mere 574,400 jobs during the same period. Simple math proves that we’re in store for a shortage.

What’s another word for shortage? Ah, yes. Opportunity. If you’re thinking about earning your nursing credentials, or considering a move into the field, there’s absolutely no time better than the present.

Join Regis University at our next rendition of Nursing Night Out, an evening designed for nurses and aspiring nurses alike, complete with food, beverages and Regis’ nursing faculty who will be on hand to answer your education questions.
