There are few problems more alarming in this country than the nursing shortage. We are seeing a greater number of nurses retire or leave the profession while fewer are entering. In addition to this problem, the aging of the nation’s 78 million baby boomers is leading to a growing number of patients, who are demanding more care than the older generations in the past. These combined forces could lead to an estimated nursing shortage of more than 800,000 by 2020.
