Nurses post-pandemic are experiencing higher rates of burnout, and retiring nurses are not being quickly replaced. The ongoing nursing shortage in Georgia has created 43,000 vacancies.
Despite the demand, Georgia State must turn away 69% of qualified nursing applicants due to faculty and clinical placement shortages.
– John Haupert, President and CEO, Grady Health System
