Letters of Intent for Admission to BSN Programs

Few prospective careers present as many opportunities as nursing, as a result of an ongoing if not permanent nursing shortage in the Developed World. Nurses can use this shortage to their advantage since it provides them with greater options across a wide breadth of organizations. This is especially true for nurses with a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree. Since that degree gives RNs the ability to take on greater levels of responsibility, they are in greater demand, now and for the foreseeable future.

There are several complex and interrelated reasons for the nursing shortage with no end in sight. These include looming retirement age for older nurses, the aging of the general population, and ongoing and increasing innovation in care coordination. In the future, in all likelihood, nurses will increasingly be called upon to accept leadership roles with greater complexity so as to meet challenges that didn’t exist even a decade ago.

It is estimated that by the year 2020, there will be at least 400,000 fewer nurses available to provide care than is needed. The total demand for services will rise by the year 2025, when 68.3% of the current nursing workforce will be among the first of 78 million baby boomers reaching retirement age and enrolling in the Medicare program. The elderly population (65 years and older) at that time is expected to rise to 17% of the US population. The implications of these statistics are staggering if workforce issues aren't addressed with an ardent resolve to tackle the multitude of concerns that are causing the current nursing shortage. Current trends show that the nursing workforce is already transitioning to non-patient care and other less physically demanding roles. Dr Peter Buerhaus and colleagues also note that more experienced RNs may have higher expectations of working conditions and require greater autonomy and respect than has been typically accorded.
