  • PODCAST Listen to one of our TONE Members, Jan Jones-Schenk discuss the nursing crisis in Texas and what WGU Texas is doing to respond to it.

    According to the Texas Nursing Workforce Shortage Coalition, the demand for full-time registered nurses in Texas exceeds supply by 22,000. The gap is estimated to reach a 70,000 nurse shortage in this state by 2020 as working nurses, averaging 46 years old, retire. In fact, Texas could lose more than 40 percent of its working nurses in the next ten years. Despite that, Texas nursing schools turned away more than 11,000 qualified applicants in 2010, primarily due to lack of faculty and capacity.
