Taking nurses for granted

On May 15, the Times ran the editorial "For Want of a Nurse." It says that the U.S. has long taken nurses for granted and that it should pay them higher, but it inevitably oversimplifies the issue and potential options. The piece rightly notes that the nation historically relied on the restricted profession choices for girls to offer "extremely certified folks working for very low wages."

However "ladies’ liberation" has produced a "drastic lack of lecturers and nurses." It says the issue is particularly acute now that the getting old U.S. populations face "the approaching retirement of the final technology of girls who selected to nurse just because they did not wish to train." This statement means that any rational profession seeker would contemplate instructing first and that there can be no particular motive for girls to decide on nursing aside from the generalized want to work the home outdoors--you know, a purpose like saving lives.

The concept increasing job alternatives for ladies is solely accountable for the nursing scarcity can be an enormous oversimplification. That has in fact been an element for many years. However, virtually the most speedy cause for the present shortage is the managed care-driven short-staffing that has pushed nurses from the bedside. An extra primary one is the gross undervaluation of the profession--like suggesting its most senior members selected it solely as a result of they did not need to teach--that has led to an absence of adequate medical and academic assets.
