No nursing shortage at new center 

Although healthcare is projected to have a Registered Nurse shortage that is only expected to intensify as Baby Boomers age, a new local skilled nursing facility is currently well-staffed.  Nancy Bohrman, the nursing home administrator for the Pete and Jelaine Horton Skilled Nursing and Hospice Care Center in Sturgeon Bay, says the commitment shown by employees has helped to provide consistent long term care as well as work longevity.

 

 

The 30-room, state-of-the-art facility opened this last August.  The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that over the next six years, more than 438,000 new RN jobs are projected to be added to the workforce nationally.
