Unfortunately, the nursing shortage has impacted Connecticut and one of the primary reasons is the lack of nursing school faculty to educate new nurses. By 2010, Connecticut will be short more than 11,000 registered nurses. And by 2020, that number is projected to double, leaving Connecticut with fewer than half the nurses it needs, according to a report by the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). As a result, over the past two years Connecticut's 18 nursing schools turned away more than 2,000 applicants.
