Event Description

There is an acute shortage of health care providers, especially nursing care providers, creating a situation only expected to grow worse in the coming years. Suzanne Gordon considers a variety of proposals from nursing organizations and legislative sources intended to correct this problem. She presents alternative analyses, solutions and messages to address the problem of why nursing, as it is currently perceived, is not a long term satisfying career and how it can become a career of choice for both men and women.
