I need help on research for ways to improve staffing

  1. HI,

    I am a on-line graduate student. I have just started. I have never been in administration, so it is hard for me to "think outside my box." I would like to know if anyone out there can tell me how I can prove a point that more nursing hours/patient staffing ratio are needed in the hospital setting. I need 12-13 references to back me up. Please advise me on this. I need a proposal in ASAP.

    Dear Jeansan

    You can visist a site called pubmed and put your quary as " shortage of nurses", and i believe you will be able to get many research studies on this particuler issue. if you still have any concerns, let me know how can i help you.
    you can also look for something like "nurse patient ratio" and i hope you will get good articles
    best of luck

    Look up articles and research by these two authors: Linda Aiken and Peter Buerhaus. Both are actively researching this topic and have been for years.
