Boston Assignment #1 Human Resources Management Spring 2012 Step 1: Pick a current event article. Shortage in Healthcare Organizations Step 2: Briefly describe the current event and your organization. The nursing shortage is slowing, but surly approaching the present. Unfortunately, as the recent nurses are aging as a group, they are not being replaced in adequate numbers; the average age of a nurse is 47. As addressed in the article Partners in Solutions to the Nurse Faculty Shortage, “ the looming shortage of nurses threatens the stability of, and access to, quality health care for patients across all care settings.” As the population ages, the need for nurses with skills appropriate for a variety of care settings will only continue to grow. Such as, primary and chronic health care, long-term care community- based care, and public services. Also, nurses will be needed to provide direct patient care in hospitals, outpatient settings, home care, nursing homes, assisted living, rehabilitation, workplaces, schools, and so much more.” .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
