Global Nursing Education Market Dynamics


  • Rising nurse practitioners

According to a study published in Health Affairs, “the number of physicians choosing primary care careers remains insufficient to replace those retiring.” “This is especially true in rural areas where providers are in short supply. As a result, practises may increase their use of non-physician providers such as nurse practitioners.” The shortage of primary care physicians, more family nurse practitioners, are needed. These and other advanced practise nurses, such as nurse midwives and nurse anaesthetists, are far less expensive than physicians. And as access to care grows, the incentive to drive down costs is stronger than ever. These are the certain factors which will grow the market.

  • High demand of nursing

Nursing is in high demand and projections indicate that it will continue to rise. Demographic changes, such as large ageing populations in many countries around the world, fuel this demand. Globally, health challenges are changing and becoming more complex as a result of an ageing population with a chronic disease burden, such as cardiovascular, hypertension, diabetes, and mental health conditions.


  • Growing demand for certification and degrees

The growing demand for certification and degrees among students in order to gain a competitive edge is expected to fuel market growth. Rising demand for nurses in hospitals, high adoption of social media to learn and create communities, increasing number of nursing colleges and institutes worldwide, unrelenting change in healthcare technology and patient care, and escalating motivation to advance professional knowledge among younger generations have all contributed to increased demand for nursing education market from 2022 to 2029.


  • High cost

The cost factor, in conjunction with the nursing education courses offered by universities and institutes, may stymie the growth of the nursing education market during the forecast period. The importance of education and practical knowledge provided by various nursing organizations and high start-up costs will pose significant challenges to market growth.
