The Future Of The Nurse Shortage: Will Wage Increases Close The Gap? | Nursing Aspect 2 | Scoop.it
Brendan Eric Karnbauer's insight:

Places have been trying to use an increase of wages to try and make the nursing field more appealing and make more people want to work as a nurse. The shortage is so large that it is said that by 2020 there will be a shortage of roughly 800,000 nurses. This number shows the dire need for nurses and the reasoning for this demand.

Brendan Eric Karnbauer's insight:

Another reason for the lack of nurses is because the cencus is so high at the hospitals and they need more people to work. When the economy went down people did not go to college as much so the health care field took a direct shot because of that.

The profession as a whole is expected to experience sustained growth and increased demand through the end of the decade.
Brendan Eric Karnbauer's insight:

Hospitals have been hurting specifically for the nursing positions and this has been raising the cost for a typical visit to the hospital because the few nurses they have they will have to pay overtime because they have to work more days and more hours. This is the reason that they have been paying people a couple thousand dollars in bonuses to get them to work at that hospital.

Make sure you find a focus for all of this info - connect to thesis. Your info included here seems to be a broad overview of the nursing field - narrow for final project
