Which states will have the biggest nursing shortages by 2025?

In 2025, states on the east and west coasts will likely have nursing shortages, while states in the middle of the country will have a surplus of nurses, according to Georgetown University School of Nursing & Health Studies.


Nursing@Georgetown's Online FNP Program used data from "The Future of the Nursing Workforce: National- and State-Level Projections, 2012-2025" from the Health Resources and Services Administration to create an infographic of the projected supply of nurses in each state.

Arizona will have the largest nurse shortage, with 28,100 fewer registered nurses than necessary. North Carolina and Colorado will need 12,900 nurses each by 2025.

Meanwhile, Ohio is projected to have a 75,400-nurse surplus by 2025.
