Michigan has many nursing jobs available, but not enough nurses to fill them. According to an industry study, Michigan is projected to be 18,000 nurses short by 2015. The main issue, much like in other states, is that there is not enough qualified faculty to accommodate the numerous qualified applicants interested in nursing. Another issue is the aging nursing workforce. Both of these problems are being addressed, and the good news is nurses and nursing instructors are in high demand across the state.
