Signs the nursing shortage has finally been taken seriously:

¥ Older experienced nurses are fervently wooed back with 6, 8, 10, 12 hour shift options, scheduling leeway

¥ Working conditions become pleasant and condusive to excellent patient outcomes and nurse satisfaction

¥ Greatly increased wages and benefits based on experience

¥ Nursing Schools open the pipeline and let in ALL qualified applicants with experienced, hands-on, considerate abundant instructors

WHEN do you think *this* will happen ???

What signs will be your Indicators ?

I wondered if you'd been toking a little or drinking a little mushroom tea! Put on those rose-colored glasses, and it all looks really good! It sure would be nice for us, and our patients, if those kinds of things would happen!

Wow, I thought this may be a thread that had an article addressing that maybe one state or hospital recognized the importance of nurses and the positive outcomes the patients receive from that care. But, then I did just get off work. I think it could happen if all the nurses in the country would unite with an organized and strong voice. MHO.

That is sweeeeeet Tom, we have a "Coperate" charity golf tournament, $1000 a foursome. Won't be playing in that one, ever.

As for as what Cascadiens said, it'll happen when they build a new bridge from Buffalo to Fort Erie, Build the Casino, build anything usable besides and empty strip mall, build anything with out sombody pissen an moaning about it. In other workds, never.

The census is low, and people talk of nurse shortages, and i worked diligently to get into nursing school.

What about a "patient shortage?" iF THE NUMBERS of patients start dropping off, there will be too many nurses, and folks will be sent home w/o $$$ or worse. It's okay to encourage folks to be patients, right?
