Infographic Details Jobs and the Nursing Shortage

As a member of hospital community, you know how important it is to maintain optimum staffing levels. It’s important to healthcare workers, staff, administration, and, of course, patients.

As time passes, the nursing shortage will continue to have a major impact on staffing levels at healthcare facilities. But what exactly is the trajectory of the shortage? And what are the factors that are influencing it?

Medical Solutions recently released an infographic titled, “Nursing Shortage: Then Why Can’t I Find a Job?” The infographic is primarily aimed at Travel Nurses, but we wanted to share it here on the Healthcare Staffing Blog as well, since it highlights some important trends and causes of the nursing shortage.

Understanding when and why the nursing shortage is expected to peak can help your facility know what to expect, staff appropriately, and continue delivering excellent patient care.

  1. As you mentioned, more experienced nurses are postponing their retirement to protect their financial future. Seeing how hard the recession hit that doesn’t surprise me. But as more and more of the Baby Boomers grow older (which includes plenty of those more experienced nurses), the healthcare industry is going to need to grow dramatically to meet the needs of more patients. Those younger nurses WILL find spots in great hospitals sooner rather than later.
