Here we go again ...
Yes, working conditions are a factor, I don't doubt that. But so are aging demographics and high failure rates in nursing schools.
I guess you guys just want an excuse to complain about work all the time. You really don't want to talk about ALL the factors that contribute to the shortage.
Like the fact that retirements and deaths jumped by 150,000 in the last nursing survey, because the RN workforce is aging. Or, that there's 80 percent failure rates in pre-reqs and nursing schools.
Nah ... I guess it's more fun to say it's a hospital conspiracy.
