    Hi again oramar. Thanks Brian for the link. I believe I remember reading this particular article. I support the fact that this nursing shortage will be different from previous. I believe this is affected by the following:
    1. We are living in an economy that is varied and wide ranging.
    2. Advanced technology and the internet has had a tremendous impact on the economy, potential work opportunities, and the psyche of people who are exposed to it.
    3. Advanced technology, managed care, and the domination of special interest groups such as pharmaceuticals have changed the way health and medical care is provided and has made it difficult to perform care in the most meaningful and safe way.
    4. The focus on profitizing health and medical care has taken the care out of health and medical and has put a severe strain on nurses who went into bedside nursing as a career. (See #2)
    5. Aging en mass is going to have a traumatic effect on the health and medical care system and the economy in general. The system is already ripping at the seams. It's just a matter of time for the bottom falls out. There was never any real effort to make prevention a primary focus for quality of life until after costs started going up.
    6. The overall priorities of families have shifted away from caring.
    These are just some of the reasons I feel we are in for a longer and/or meaner shortage than usual.
