There is a great need to fill open many available nursing jobs in Alabama. A few years ago the Alabama Board of Nursing developed a Center for Nursing to help deal with the shortage issue. Their goal is to forecast workforce statistics and ensure planning is being done to fix the huge predicted gap between supply and demand for nurses, specifically RNs. The need for LPNs in Alabama will also be expected to increase tremendously, so opportunities in nursing are abundant.
