The gap between the demand for more nursing jobs in Pennsylvania and the supply of nurses is severe, with an expected 41 percent vacancy rate in nursing positions by the year 2020. This means 54,000 more nurses will be required by then to provide adequate patient care for Pennsylvania residents. Several statewide campaigns are already in place to staff more nursing educators who can provide the growing number of nursing students with the tools to thrive in the industry and alleviate the nursing shortage in hospitals.

Wound, ostomy and continence nurses care for patients that have wounds (including ulcers and those caused by injury), ostemies (artificial openings that allow for alternate disposal of bodily wastes) and/or incontinence. The major professional organization is the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society (WOCN). Certification is maintained by the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB), and their CWOCN, COCN, CWCN and CCCN credentials are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC) and the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median registered nurse salary is $62,450.
