Competition to Get into Nursing School
Most people are aware that demand, as well as job prospects for nurses, is attractive in the United States. When compared to the past, the demand for nurses is higher and the shortage of nurses is projected to increase manifold in the coming years. This is why several recruitment initiatives are motivating students to consider this profession and are coming forward to bear several of the costs linked to the nursing school.
But, when it comes to nursing school admissions, it’s a different scenario. Getting into a nursing school is really competitive. Some students are finding themselves wait-listed for years during which they will be asked to wait for a nursing program to open the gate. Some may be denied admission in spite of the outstanding grades and experience in healthcare. Now, the question is why it is so hard to get into a nursing school? Why are colleges and universities not graduating more nurses when there is a shortage? Let’s discuss this, here.
