Many of these nurses are also willing to work on days that nurses from the United States would not like to work. But there are also issues that may arise such as HIV/AIDS, external and internal migration, and nursing workforce issues. Recruiting foreign nurses does not resolve the shortage in the US healthcare delivery system (Carney). According to the textbook, importing foreign nurses to solve the nursing shortage only puts a band-aid on the problem (Huston, 2019). Carney, B. (n.d.). The Ethics of Recruiting Foreign Nurses.

Allow scheduling flexibility . This helps nurses juggle their busy work schedule with home life and educational opportunities, and also allows them to decompress between stressful, emotionally demanding shifts. Keeping nurses happy when it comes to scheduling will create a more positive work atmosphere and help the hospital retain quality nurses. Promote career development . With new Institute of Medicine recommendations that call for 80 percent of nurses to have a bachelor's degree by 2020, it's important that hospitals help nurses obtain the highest education possible. As a result, nurses will feel more satisfied and more likely to stay within the organization. Listen to nurses' voices . Give nurses and staff ample face time with supervisors and managers, so they can voice concerns and share ideas about improving workflow. Implementing those ideas and suggestions also shows nurses that hospital managers are serious about their opinions and input. Sullivan, K. (2014, September 15). 3 ways your hospital can overcome the nursing shortage. Retrieved from - shortage . The U.S. is projected to experience a shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) that is expected to intensify as Baby Boomers age and the need for health care grows. Compounding the problem is the fact that nursing schools across the country are struggling to expand capacity to meet the rising demand for care given the national move toward healthcare reform.
