I know there is tons of discussion on this site about this subject. I also don't personally see a nursing shortage. I just received a document from the Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence that proclaims yet again that Colorado is under an 11% nursing shortage. Regardless of how you feel about this issue or where you live, please take this incredibly short survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/J8ZSPWP
. I promise to re-post results if I get enough respondents. I'm having trouble understanding why the press, government, and researchers insist on this shortage when there are so many nurses on this site having trouble finding work. Maybe that because all the working nurses are too busy working to blog about it! Anyway thanks!
