Connecticut’s Nursing Shortage
By 2020, Connecticut is projected to be short by more than 22,000 registered nurses, leaving Connecticut with fewer than half the nurses it needs, according to the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).
National Nursing Shortage
By 2025, more than one million nursing jobs are expected to be available. Also, by 2025, the nursing shortage will be twice the size of any nursing shortage experienced since the introduction of Medicare and Medicaid in the 1960s.
CT’s First Nursing Summit
Participants from Connecticut’s first “Nursing Summit” event united Connecticut’s practice-based nurses and nurse educators from hospitals and other healthcare settings across Connecticut with UConn School of Nursing faculty.
