It has been said for years now, that Wisconsin is bracing itself for a massive nursing shortage. This is anticipated over the next decade. Various efforts have been made to prevent this from happening. One of the most significant efforts was to create more Nurse Educators, so schools can have more enrollments and ensure that no more students have to be turned away. Colleges have had to turn away hundreds, sometimes over thousands of students every academic year due to a shortage of staff and resources.
