Nursing industry suffering from lack of instructors

My sister works as a pediatric nurse. It’s a stressful job. She works with kids who have cancer, and that all too often ends sadly.

I know, then, how important nurses are to patients. They provide much of the important caring for patients. Doctors get the glory; nurses do most of the dirty work.

Unfortunately, many states are expecting a nursing shortage in the next few years. Part of the reason is that their colleges are turning potential nursing students away because they don’t have enough qualified instructors to give these future nurses the training they need.

This, of course, is a shame. There aren’t too many careers today that are growing. Nursing could be one of them. Too bad we don’t have enough of the resources to make it happen.
