What does the term nursing shortage mean to you? To me it seems like it means, there are not enough nurses to go around for all the sick patients.
It seems like there has been a so-called nursing shortage forever. Doesn't it to you?
I know the economy is really bad but even when it was good there was a nursing shortage. Do you think the nursing shortage is a direct result of hospitals trying to get by with minimal nursing staff, caused by budget concerns, probably due to not getting paid for care by medicare and other insurance companies along with the outrageous cost of some medical supplies and care?
Wheeewww, that was a long question. It's just frustrating when you hear new grads can't get a job and about more experienced nurses being run off due to workplace violence, etc. Nurses and our patients deserve way better than this.
Why can the NFL get their team so tight and together yet hospitals, health care workers, and most important patients of the USA can't? I think it might be the money thing again, huh? IJS.....nursing shortage??????????
Yes, good luck on your job hunt! Thanks for the thread, ruthere04976.:redpinkhe
