Nurse Apprenticeships

The US is taking steps to to join other countries, such as England, to provide nursing apprenticeship programs to help act on the projected shortage in nurses. Educational institutions, federal governments and local governments are joining together to create nursing apprenticeships so that students can earn money and gain real experience while continuing to go to school. This solution is aimed at attracting more students to purse a nursing degree, as well as make it possible for people who normally wouldn't be able to afford the tuition costs. At the moment, Kentucky is the only state to officially provide an accredited nursing apprenticeship program with other states following closely behind.

Future nurses should keep an eye on the rise in apprenticeships and opportunities for paid training to become a nurse.
