Need data for research paper.
Question: Do you feel their is a shortage of nurses? and why?
There's an abundance of nurses, especially new grads!!! It's unfortunate that Hospitals, Dialysis, Home Care and other specialties do not hire us. It's a very sad economy and many health care industries are missing out on VERY competent and qualified nurses!!!! I'm very dissappointed in how the health care industry has treated new grads!!!
I don't see how individual nurses' "feelings" about whether (and why) there's a nursing shortage would have any place in a research paper. There is plenty of hard data out there that would be more appropriate.
Best wishes for your paper, though --

What is the nursing shortage and why does it exist?
The nursing shortage has been defined as "global", so while there may seem to be a surplus in your part of the world, there are not enough to go around to provide effective care in all parts of the world.
Of course, I do not exclude the possibility that certain organizations may use the "shortage" excuse for dropping standards.
I hope you can open the site I pasted, it gives a fairly good overview.
