Has the Nursing Shortage Disappeared?



It's that time of year again. Graduating nursing students are preparing to take the NCLEX and are looking for their first jobs. This year, many are finding those first jobs in short supply.

I think the nursing shortage is just a myth...I agree with Jessica, hospitals should be more welcoming to new grads. I appreciate some hospitals doing residency programs for new grads, like me!I think this is the best strategic planning for hospitals to acquire committed, dedicated and skilled RNs.

Hospitals should accept new graduates, because the senior nurses are not going to be around forever. What will happen when they start retiring and they start to see a huge shortage of nurses? They need to start preparing since now, by training the new graduates so they become more experienced.
