Pandemic exposes urgent need for more nurses worldwide, WHO says
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought into sharp relief an urgent need for more nurses worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. There will be a global shortage of 4.6 million nurses by 2030 without more investment in the profession, the WHO projected in a report. The number of nursing graduates needs to increase by an average of 8% a year, and governments should address issues such as pay, training, career opportunities and working conditions to retain them in the field, the report said.
