Need for nurses increases

Posted: Updated:

The demand for nurses is at an all time high as a result of the Affordable Care Act.

The number of health insured Americans is expected to increase, which may mean more Nebraskans will make trips to see the doctor.

Of course more patients, mean the need for healthcare staff will increase.

"There has been a nation wide shortage in nursing projected for several years and in fact there are several organizations and groups working to try to address these shortages now."

There will be some funding available under the new law, which will enable health clinics and hospitals to fund more positions.
