The explosive growth of the baby boomer population has challenged many with the task of evaluating and planning for acute and long term care needs beyond what the country is prepared for. An already taxed healthcare system is facing one of the greatest challenges of our time, and that deadline is rapidly approaching. Many hospitals, schools, and community groups have encouraged the development and expansion of nursing programs which has led to increased students, but studies indicate there may still be a significant nurse shortage.
Despite the challenges of nursing, the expected nurse shortage is not due to workers leaving the profession. On the contrary, nursing is seen as a stable and rewarding profession and many aging nurses continue to practice well past retirement age. However, being a nurse is difficult, and often thankless. We ought to be grateful for the care we receive and support those that are committed to overcoming the overbearing challenge of the medical profession.
