A Question.....

  1. I've read recently that the nursing shortage is not universal, but that it exists in pockets throughout the US. Is this true, and if so, where are such pockets? I'm considering relocating. Thanks for any help!

    don't know for sure or about other hospitals but we are being called off some on my unit in nv. it's rehab so maybe it is different in the main hospital. we have an rn now who wants full time but there is no position available.

    DO you mean empty pockets (few nurses) or full pockets (enough nurses) ?

    I suggest you come to SC. Smiling Faces Beautiful Places and it doesn't snow here.

    We can always use nurses (personally we could use some night shift ER nurses) and the pay seems to be with-in the norm's.

    There is a shortage here in this corner of SW Michigan, but you won't want to come here because most of the jobs are all with one medical provider that owns 3 of the 4 hospitals and 2 of the nursing homes in this county. They are in deep denial that there is a shortage despite the fact that there are positions open on every unit and staff are consistently working short.

    ... After all, several months ago the WHO released their report that there is a worldwide nursing shortage!

    There might be pockets of the country where there is no shortage, but they are few and far between.
