They are referred to as “angels of mercy,” the “front lines” of American healthcare. However, our so-called “angel of mercy” is in a difficult situation. They are confronting a serious nursing shortage that shows no signs of improvement. If we have such high regard for nurses, why are they dropping like flies?
To begin excavating our way out of the nurse crisis, we must first grasp what is now creating it and what is at risk.
- Nurse Burnout
Nursing burnout can occur as a result of being overworked for the nurses who do stay.
- Swelling Healthcare System
A growing population necessitates an expanding healthcare system, particularly as the population ages and baby boomers crowd the already overburdened system.
- Shifting Gender Roles
Nursing is still primarily a female-dominated profession. Because modern women have more job options than women 40 years ago, fewer women are entering the nursing profession, and men continue to avoid it.
Aside from enlisting the help of an employment staffing agency, here’s what we need to do to get additional nurses into our overcrowded hospitals:
- Reorganize nursing education.
- Implement nursing residency programs or other transitional programs.
- Encourage boys and men to pursue careers as nurses and nursing jobs in Pennsylvania.
- Introduce the beauty of travel nursing jobs.
American healthcare cannot exist without nurses, and the medical system is already at capacity. ATC Healthcare Services strives to assist incapacitated healthcare facilities by providing dependable staffing services.
