October 24, 2002, U of S Nurses lured by big US Dollars, University of Saskatchewan:"She worked in North Dakota for several years until she was able to get a job in Saskatchewan in 1997. Even then, "there were people who had been in casual positions for up to six years waiting to get permanent jobs." Tracey never wanted to leave the province, however, some grads welcome the opportunity to travel. American recruiters begin courting U of S students before they even finish school, and they have a great deal to offer."

March 2002, North Dakota Project Ladders in Nursing Careers Program (L.I.N.C.), Robert Wood Johnson Foundation:"North Dakota Project L.I.N.C. focused on bridging distances — both physical and cultural. L.I.N.C. students were spread across a 47,000 square mile area in North Dakota, and they were further challenged by harsh winter weather. To bring students and schools closer together, North Dakota L.I.N.C. employed a variety of distance learning tools — from satellite and interactive video to correspondence courses, e-mail, and itinerant professors. To successfully reach and retain Native American students (three Indian reservations lay inside the North Dakota L.I.N.C. target market), Project L.I.N.C. partnered with the RAIN program (Recruitment/Retention of American Indians into Nursing) at the University of North Dakota (UND)."

January 2002 Prescription needed for ailing healthcare facilities, Employment Review Online:"Midwest The disparities between rural and urban settings can be felt at healthcare facilities throughout the country. In states such as Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin, the differences can be especially severe. Many of these states are characterized by rural environments, a factor that can further hinder their attempts to recruit professionals for healthcare positions. The issue is particularly prevalent in North and South Dakota. Nursing shortages are a big problem as many healthcare professionals are choosing to work in urban areas. The North Dakota Board of Nursing reports that 63 percent of the nurses in the state live in eight of the region's 53 counties. Higher salary and a more diverse lifestyle are two reasons for the unequal distribution. South Dakota faces the same concern. With only two metropolitan areas, the state is often competing with other parts of the country that offer better salaries and benefits."

March 2001, North Dakota: Health care crisis looms:"Nursing shortages combined with a lack of funding for area hospitals are creating a recipe for disaster within North Dakota's health care industry. The state's nursing shortage is epitomized in Rugby, where the medical center has 50 openings for licensed or certified positions."

Practical Nursing Program: A solution to the nursing shortage in rural North Dakota, Ashley Medical Center:"The Ashley Medical Center has partnered with the North Dakota State College of Science to implement a unique Practical Nursing Program in the City of Ashley. There is a well-known nursing shortage throughout the United States and this program addresses the chronic nursing shortage in the area. It is extremely difficult to recruit a registered nurse or a licensed practical nurse to the remote rural Ashley area. Without nurses, there can be few health services. It is our endeavor to provide the best quality services for our community."

Staffing concerns plague midwestern healthcare facilities, Bestjobsusa.com:"A growing elderly population and technological advancements are having a huge impact on the healthcare industry today. Due to these factors, the need for qualified medical professionals is critical. Unfortunately, the demand is far outweighing the supply in many areas. And like most regions across the country, the Midwestern states - Illinois, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin - are suffering from this shortage.

Healthcare providers focus on recruiting and retention, BestJobsNorthdakota.com:"The healthcare shortage can be felt hard in North Dakota. Unfortunately, location is a big issue for this Upper Midwest state. "It is the older part of the country," says Arnold R. "Chip" Thomas, president of Bismarck-based North Dakota Healthcare Association (NDHA). "There just aren't as many people to draw from." The problem that North Dakota is facing is a decreasing population of young people. This is a major dilemma for the healthcare industry. How are medical facilities supposed to attract people to healthcare professions when there aren't enough people to attract? A majority of colleges and universities in the state has been experiencing a decrease in healthcare enrollment."

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."
