ill continue to intensify over time.  We are excited about the company's long-term ability to revolutionize the nursing education field."

The aging population, aging nurse workforce, and spotlight on healthcare reform all contribute to a widely publicized nationwide nursing shortage.  A recent study by the Bureau of Labor Statistics has indicated that nearly 600,000 new nursing positions will need to be created by 2016 to address the current shortfall, and the Bureau of Health Professions estimates that 90 percent more nurses will need to be graduated from nursing programs to meet that demand.  Also, according to Vanderbilt University, four out of every ten nurses in the U.S. are over the age of 50 and will retire in the next ten years, exacerbating the shortage.

Blending technology and traditional methods, Orbis Education powers the collaborations that accelerate nursing program enrollments.  Leveraging Orbis Education's Full Circle Solutions, a hospital becomes a virtual extension of a major university.   Theory courses are taught by university nursing faculty via interactive online classes that include threaded discussions, real-time webcasts, projects, assignments and proctored examinations. Students have the flexibility of completing the online courses during day or evening hours and hands-on clinical preparation is taught by appointed university faculty assigned to work directly with students.

In partnership with universities and leading hospitals, Orbis Education creates an ideal nursing pipeline of men and women who are able to quickly transition from students to employees upon graduation.
