There is a clear gap between the supply and the demand for Texas nursing jobs. Like elsewhere, Texas is suffering from a shortage of nurses, to the tune of 70,000 by 2020. The State Legislature is working on a number of bills to improve training capacity so that they can fill many of these Texas nursing jobs. Though the bulk of the nursing jobs in Texas are located in the Dallas and Houston areas, there is a clear need for nurses throughout the State.
