    ECPI University Expanding to Address Continued Nursing Shortage 

    Charleston, SC – ECPI University’s Charleston Campus is pleased to announce that it is now accepting applications for its new Nursing (RN) program. “The demand for nurses is expected to intensify as baby boomers age and large numbers of nurses begin to retire,” says Patti Steele, Director of Nursing at ECPI University’s Charleston campus. “What’s more, advances in healthcare technology and a growing focus on preventative medicine will exacerbate the situation.”

    Nationally, employment of registered nurses is expected to grow by 16 percent between 2014 and 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics. “In South Carolina, there are nearly 1,300 RN openings in hospitals alone, with many other positions available in doctors’ offices, as well as long-term care, rehab, and hospice facilities,” says Steele.
