The future of nursing: A 10,000-foot view
from By Keith Carlson
Nursing and healthcare in the United States are at a crossroads. A broad view of the issues at hand are required in order to address the future of the nursing profession, the American healthcare system and an aging population. Questions regarding the potential existence of a nursing shortage, the number of nurses and nurse educators poised to retire, and the lack of hospital-based employment for new nurses are just some of the conundrums facing us at this juncture. One thing is for certain — the conversations we are having all point to the fact that changes are afoot, and an expansive 10,000-foot view is desperately needed.
