Why Is There a Shortage of Nurses?

From the Show: Health Radio
Summary: Nursing isn't what it used to be.
Air Date: 5/18/16
Duration: 10
Host: Melanie Cole, MS
Guest Bio: Juliana Adams, BSN, MSN, MA
Juliana AdamsJuliana Adams, BSN, MSN, MA is dedicated to the advancement of the nursing profession and is actively engaged in how nursing care is delivered. She is an author, speaker and film maker. In 2012 she produced the film Exposure, Reclaiming the Nobility of Nursing to meet the requirements of developing an original work of discovery for a Masters degree in Spiritual Psychology. This film led her to seek a greater understanding of what was noble about the profession of nursing. What began as a metaphor of her own exposure to nursing led to her writing The Joy of Nursing: Reclaiming Our Nobility. She is an instructor in English as a Second Language (ESL). Her early-beginner students are predominately Korean, Chinese and Mongolian. She marvels that what she learns and enjoys about her students which is far more than what they receive from her. Juliana's personal belief is that if everyone supported one person that needed some assistance, we would have societal and global needs met on a level that would exceed most of our expectations. These gifts of ourselves would then sow seeds of greater understanding.

Why Is There a Shortage of Nurses?
Nursing is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. However, demand is outpacing supply.

There is a lot of diversity available in nursing. There are many specialties and environments. You no longer have to count yourself out if you can't stand the sight of blood. Because there are so many nursing jobs available, there are shortages to fill these positions in some parts of the country.

The average salary in 2015 was $68,000 right out of nursing school. Hard work and long hours may be part of the job, but many nurses don't feel underappreciated or dissatisfied with work.

Listen in as veteran nurse Juliana Adams shares about the rewards of nursing.
