Meanwhile, all surrounding states that employers recruit from are below the national average. But what is really causing this shortage? "I don't know that it is for lack of teachers. In our area, we're seeing a lot of manufacturing moving in so I think that is taking a lot of our younger workforce," said Hanks. "Nursing programs, they tend to be very full but they're not always turning out enough nursing students to help us with the recruitment effort," Stevens said. "Often people will be attracted to states with higher population with the ability to make more income," said Jayson Lloyd, Instructional Dean for the Health and Human Services at the College of Southern Idaho. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, registered nurses earn a national average of $71K. The median annual wage for a registered nurse in Idaho in 2015 was nearly $10K less at approximately $61K.
