The American Association of Colleges of Nursing has updated their fact sheet on the nursing shortage, a fact sheet that I’ve used before for obtaining shortage data for the promotion of Caring Lessons. Check out their website:

As one of the growing population of older folks, I want nurses, registered nurses, to be available when I’m going to need them. I hope some of you will consider nursing or at least encourage nurses you know for their work or nursing students to persevere when they feel overwhelmed.
I, after nearly 40 years of nursing, can readily say that nothing matches the reward of being able to help another human being at any and all times of their life.
