Global nursing shortages

Article English OPEN
Buchan, James (2002)

Nursing shortages in the United Kingdom and elsewhere have been a repetitive phenomenon, usually due to an increasing demand for nurses outstripping static or a more slowly growing supply. Demand continues to grow, while projections for supply point to actual reductions in the availability of nurses in some developed and developing countries.
