  •  lack of nursing training programs (1+ / 0-)

    There used to be a lot of hospital-based programs. Then someone (I don't know who) decided those programs were no good, you should have a BA. But the BA programs didn't grow. My understanding is that there are skads of students trying to get into nursing programs, but very few places each year. This is nuts! Instead it's apparently cheaper for hospitals to bring nurses from Tanzania or hire temp "travel nurses."
