What the Future Holds

There is an expected 86% increase in demand for RNs from 2005 to 2020, about 226,000 RNs. According to a national medical publication, Heath Affairs, the Registered Nurse shortage is projected to grow to 260,000 by 2025.  A report released by the American Health Care Association in 2008 states more than 19,400 RN vacancies exist in long-term care settings. These vacancies, coupled with an additional 116,000 open positions in hospitals (reported by the American Hospital Association), bring the total RN vacancies in the U.S. to more than 135,000. This translates into a national RN vacancy rate of 8.1%. The average salary for a registered nurse ranges from $41,000 to $80,000 annually.
