There is a great need to create and fill more nursing jobs in New Hampshire, but there is currently a shortage. This is not due to a lack of interest in nursing, but rather a lack of faculty to teach qualified applicants at nursing schools and hospitals. Recent efforts have been made to expand programs and add nursing courses online, but with the average age of RNs being almost 50 in the state, more will need to be done to make up for an aging workforce.
