The shortagePublished 12/2/2003

Dear Editor:

I think that more people are not going into nursing despite the nationwide nursing shortage for many reasons, mainly because the changing face of health care does not support nurses. The art and science of nursingrequires a long apprenticeship and a lot of support. Many of the traditional supports for nurses have been eroded, making it a Herculean task to get the job done. Nursing is not a glamorous or an easy job, even when conditions are optimal. The job of the modern nurse has been made very difficult because of increased patient loads, increased patient acuity, and increased speed and complexity of the job. Older nurses are wearing out, and the younger ones are disillusioned. This situation cannot go on forever. The job must be redesigned to make it more attractive to both younger and older nurses.

-- Thia Rose, RN, BSN
