Don’t Just Do Something…Stand There!
The frustration in this blogger’s recent post about the lack of action among educators to address the lack of qualified teachers in nursing schooled is well-founded. I strongly agree that there are far too many studies, surveys and analyzes that 1.) indicate that there is, in fact, a nursing shortage and that 2.) re-state the well-documented reasons for the shortage.
The lack of a national strategy to address this looming crisis is disturbing and frustrating. Now is the time for someone that purports to be a leader to stand up and lead. How can the gaggle of presidential candidates ramble on about health care when the lack of skilled nurses will pretty much neutralize any efforts to provide better coverage and service.
“Okay. Mr. Citizen, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that you now have adequate health insurance coverage so you and your family can get the services you require. The bad news is that you’ll have to wait until the next batch of nurses graduates until we actually have someone to administer these services.”
