Addressing the nursing shortage begins with nurse educators

Public safety is at risk until more nurses are hired. And a first step toward that goal is to use our existing nurse workforce to educate the next generation of nurses.

Leawood, Kan. (Jan. 31, 2023) — Solving the nursing shortage will take more than one single solution. So nurse educators and other nursing professionals are doing their best to educate the healthcare community on some of the most effective options.

Recently a nurse educator at ATI, Rochelle Hughes, RN, MSN, wrote to Medpage Today to share information about a successful Student Nurse Apprenticeship Program in her state. 

"Turning away qualified applicants from nursing school should not occur when our nation is experiencing a crisis in healthcare, impacted by the nurse shortage, and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic," she wrote. This program, she went on, was a solution with real potential.
