The challenge of filling nursing jobs in Oklahoma may get more difficult before it gets easier. By 2012, Oklahoma is expected to have a shortage of more than 3,000 nurses if current trends continue. Like many other states, the main problem is a lack of nursing faculty and an aging population. What makes things more difficult in Oklahoma is that it is very rural, so recruitment is a challenge. Some hospitals are offering to pay some tuition for students who go into nursing, and offer nice signing bonuses to work full-time once they do.

Nurse educators develop and implement educational programs for both student nurses and RNs. These programs include those required for certification or certification renewal, as well as continuing education programs for registered nurses wishing to advance their degrees. The National League for Nursing (NLN) maintains the Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) credential program, which is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). Nurse educators are in high demand: The nursing shortage is in large part due to the shortage of qualified nurse educators. This demand is expected to grow as many current nurse educators retire.
