International Nurses: The solution to North Carolina's nurse shortage
By 2025 North Carolina, USA, is projected to have the second largest shortage of nurses in the country. The deficit? 12,900 nurses!
Of the 80 rural counties in North Carolina, 70 are currently ‘medical deserts’ for lack of availability to primary care. North Carolina Health New reported that ‘rural areas have a shortage of almost every type of provider’ - a statistic that can't afford to grow.
Nurse play a large role in the USA health care system, they are the single-largest population in healthcare. They play a central part in increase the value of health care by improving outcomes and the effects of not having enough nurses to provide quality care, could be devastating. North Carolina is going through a critical nursing shortage, especially beyond the nation’s urban facilities, with organizations such as the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina each donating $1 million to Triad Universities to help combat the nursing shortage in the nation.
Conexus Medstaff, along with the hospitals and facilities that we work with, believe that a solution to the nursing shortage in the USA is the employment of International Registered Nurses. International nurses that migrate to the USA to purse their American Dream, make a significant impact on helping to improve healthcare outcomes, particularly for hospitals that are struggling to fulfil their nursing shortages!
