High demands for a nurse with a BSN

The partnership between Mount Mary University and Milwaukee Area Technical College and Waukesha County Technical College is one example of innovative programming to address the impending nursing shortage. As the healthcare industry reforms, particularly for underserved populations, it is important for nursing to advance in leadership positions for this redesign of care. Earning a BSN will advance nurses who will increasingly work together as part of high-performance and interdisciplinary teams of medical professionals.

The Wisconsin Center for Nursing (WCN) projects that by 2040 the workforce shortage of RNs will reach nearly 43% if no changes are made to program capacities and infrastructure today.  The WCN recommends expanding nursing program capacity to meet the projected demand for 7,500 additional graduates annually by 2020.
