Question of the WeekPublished 8/25/2009

An anticipated nursing shortage has been delayed by nurses wary of the recession, according to a recent article in the Miami Herald.
Due to the economic downturn, a generation of nurses are slowing their retirement plans down leading the healthcare industry to have hope. However, industry experts are stating the nursing crisis is still on the horizon – just further out. The demand for nurses remains strong despite the weakened economy, partly because of the expected waves of baby boomers needing health services, according to the article. Nursing schools can't keep up with the demand from potential students seeking admission and from hospitals needing to fill vacancies now and into the future. The big question is what will the tidal waves of retirees produce when it happens.
Do you think that the recession is having an effect on the nursing shortage? Would it be a positive or negative effect? How would you propose easing the nursing shortage?
Denver’s Nursing Star would like to know your thoughts. Please email your response, along with your name, nursing credentials, city, and contact information to news@denversnursingstar.com or fax it to 720-283-2198.
