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.

Neuro-surgical nurses are specialized medical-surgical nurses that care for patients needing neurosurgery for problems involving their nervous system (the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves). The Certified Neuroscience Registered Nurse (CNRN) credential program is maintained by the American Board of Neuroscience Nursing (ABNN). Neurosurgical nurses must renew their CNRN certification every five years. The major professional organization for neurosurgical nursing is the American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN), although neuro-surgical nurses may also consider joining the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN), which is the major professional organization for adult medical-surgical nursing. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses.
