I have researched the nursing school admissions for four months now and find that most of them are "competitive". I begin to think that the shortage is really a hoax.
Does anyone have any comment regarding this story?
There hasn't been a true shortage for a long time. There are parts of the country that have a shortage, and, in many parts of the country, the nursing "market" is entirely saturated. There are some issues with distribution of nurses around the country, but no real shortage.
