HOW PREPARED ARE YOU FOR YOUR NURSING JOURNEY?
We have all heard about the need for nurses nationwide, so you may be asking yourself why is it so difficult to be accepted into a nursing program if there is a nursing shortage? Why aren’t schools graduating more nurses? Here are several reasons for the high level of competition in nursing schools.
THE CHALLENGE OF NURSING SCHOOLS
- Nursing school is academically rigorous
- Nurses make critical decisions daily
- Clinical rotations are limited
- Student to faculty ratio is small
- Nursing faculty shortage
- Nursing schools want the best and brightest
- Nurses are special people

The instructor was amazing, it was easy to register, and I was able to learn beyond what any of the TEAS prep books were able to prepare me for.” – Lauren Cunningham, TEAS Prep Course Graduate
