The Nursing Crisis in Georgia

The COVID-19 pandemic only worsened an already critical shortage of nurses across the United States. The problem is especially severe in Georgia, where the state has a low rate of nurses per capita and experts predict a shortfall of 80,000 nurses by 2032. This unsustainable trend requires a bold and visionary response. Phoebe has become a nationwide leader in healthcare workforce development, and the Living & Learning Community is a centerpiece of Phoebe’s efforts to work with regional education partners to vastly expand the pipeline of nurses and other healthcare professionals in southwest Georgia.
