Nursing Schools in Pennsylvania (PA)

Written by NS StaffJuly 21, 2011

Pennsylvania nursing schools are an important part of the healthcare system in a state that has played an essential role throughout the history of the United States. Between Gettysburg, Valley Forge, and other landmarks, you can feel the heartbeat of America on every street of the Keystone State. Philadelphia, the largest city in the state, is where the Declaration of Independence was signed; York served as the first capital of the U.S.; and even the U.S. Constitution was written in Pennsylvania.

The Pennsylvania State Nurses' Association is working hard like most nurses' associations across the country to protect the rights of Pennsylvania nurses. Among other activities, the PA Political Action committee (part of the nurses' association) raises money to promote nurses’ causes. Right now, one of the biggest issues of concern is recruiting quality RNs to fill the growing gap between the supply of nurses in Pennsylvania and the demand. This gap is expected to reach 30% by 2020, making Pennsylvania fifth in the nation in terms of projected nursing shortages.
