    A new survey shows that enrollment in nursing programs is on the rise. But that doesn't mean that it's the end of the nursing shortage. Will there ever be enough nurses without fundamentally changing the medical system? Neal Conan talks with nurses and you about the future of nursing on Talk of the Nation from NPR News. (Originally aired on Jan 2, 2002.) The Program is approx 47 minutes long and well worth the listen. You can listen to the recorded program over the web.

    thank you brian. i am listening to it now.
    i had to laff when the moderator said its "traditional" to pay more to get people into a profession.

    47 minutes isnt enough time to scratch the surface of our issues but for the time alloted it touched on a lot of our problems.
