Despite an ailing economy, demand for nursing jobs in Wisconsin continues to grow. According to the state.s Department of Workforce Development, there will be more new jobs for RNs in the upcoming years than any other occupation. And although vacancy rates have currently eased in some southern parts of the state, rural areas are still in desperate need for more nurses. Furthermore, as more new and replacement nursing jobs will need to be filled, so too will nursing faculty jobs so a greater rate of nurses can graduate from Wisconsin programs to keep up with demand.
