We have been hearing about “The Nursing Shortage” for decades now. We are either in the middle of, coming out of, or going into a shortage. In our 2017 salary survey we asked nurses when they anticipate leaving the nursing workforce and factors influencing their decisions. Using data from more than 18,000 participants, projections for the future of the healthcare industry, and statistics about nurses and patient population, we can discuss ideas about what seems to be continuously driving this shortage and perhaps how a difference can be made.
