According to the Ohio Hospital Association, data from Ohio’s hospitals show significant vacancy rates in certain health care professions, with registered nurses (RNs) topping the list in most of the state. The demand for RNs and other health care workers will continue to rise with the growing health care needs of the 78 million “baby boomers” who will begin to retire in 2010. There is an estimated need for 130,920 RNs, 41,510 LPNs and 25,020 CNAs by the end of 2016. That is a total of 197,450 nursing-related jobs that will need filling in the next eight years.
Local hospitals have also joined forces with universities and community colleges to create programs that entice students to enter the nursing field. Many employers have increased tuition reimbursement and increased salaries as well as implement perks to increase job satisfaction.
