January 28, 2003: Louisiana: Delta considers creating nursing program to meet needs:"Vikki Durkee knows well the nursing shortage in Louisiana and the rest of the nation. She has worked as a nurse, an educator and a clinical nurse specialist for a large part of her adult life. Now she has another task as she tries to put together a feasibility study to show that Louisiana Delta Community College needs a two-year registered nurse degree program. The study, required by the Louisiana State Board of Nursing, is one of the requirements Delta must fulfill before it can start the program."

Jan. 7, 2003: Lousiana: Nurses, stat!:"While times have changed in Canada, the demand for nursing and other allied health care professionals has intensified in the U.S. It's still a buyer's market, with experienced nurses able to get lucrative deals either with hospitals, surgery centers or other agencies that pay wages ranging from $25-$32 an hour for top hands. The current and projected shortages include pharmacists, radiology technologists, X-ray technologists, nurse practitioners, physicians' assistants, respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapists, respiratory and just about all categories of allied health professionals."

1999 News on The Nursing Shortage


Nursing Shortage Serious For Seniors, About.com:"As the population ages the impact of the nursing shortage will be even greater. There is a threat to the health of every older adult in the United States and Canada looming on the horizon. It is not a virus or new type of bacteria that is causing this threat. The threat to health is a result of the increasing shortage of nurses in both countries. Over the last couple of years there have been numerous stories in the press about the magnitude and causes of the shortage. So far solutions for this situation have been few. Additionally this nursing shortage will impact the oldest of citizens the most. Older adults use health care services at a higher rate than do younger people. Advances in medicine and improved nutrition and lifestyle have added years to the average life span. With this longer life comes higher needs for medical services, especially the services of professional nurses."

The Nurse/Patient Ratio by Genevieve M. Clavreul RN, Ph.D.:"The New Year heralds many things, and this year brings legislation mandating a patient/nurse ratio in California. But after the confetti stops falling, did we get what we want? We now have a panacea for thousands of nurses in California, however, the ratio really can’t be enforced. (At the writing of this article the companion bill for enforcement is stalled in the legislature, having been defeated at least once already). As my children are fond of saying, “why am I not surprised?” Having been a nurse for almost 30 years, most of those years spent in the NICU/PICU, I am used to working with a strict nurse/patient ratio. ICU’s and a few other areas of nursing have always been under the control of an “acuity” system. Actually, all nursing is supposed to be, but we all know this isn’t always the case. For this reason, I knew in my heart that legislating a nurse/patient ratio was probably an exercise in futility."

Nursing: A Medical Emergency, and Opportunity, hits home by Ronald A. Reis and Karen F. Reis RN:"You’re an RN, and you’ve been at it, administering to the sick and wounded, for months, years, maybe even decades. You’ve got your hands full with 12-hour shifts, high turnover, an often less than supportive work environment, and a stressed-out health care system that is, in places, itself on life-support. What to do? How to keep going? How to make this job, career, meaningful again? How to get out of nursing what you went into it for? How to avoid adding to the national nursing shortage by short-circuiting your own involvement in a noble profession?"

Preparing for Battle: What YOU can do for YOU, Sicker patients, reduced staffing, longer hours, and increased responsibilities—by Deborah Lynne, RN, BSN:"As Registered Nurses, few of us think of the hospital we work in as a battlefield, or of ourselves as soldiers. But the truth is, there are more similarities than you might think. We show up for our shift each day, not knowing what challenges we might encounter. Our job requires us to be in the moment at all times, and to make split second decisions on the run. What we do or don’t do can mean the difference between life and death. We often work under extreme stress, yet must remain calm and in control. Although there are others who function in a supportive capacity, we are the ones on the frontline."
