Nursing jobs in Idaho have been one of the state.s hottest jobs in recent years, and demand for nurses is expected to continue. A few years ago Idaho was facing a projected shortage of nurses nearly double the national average.

It is now projected that the supply of RNs in the state should be close to meeting demand if nursing programs continue to expand as expected.
