A world without nurses is harder to imagine than an asteroid smashing into earth.

Impact of Credit Crisis on Nursing – Topic on #RNchat

On tonight’s RNchat, we’ll discuss the short-term and long-term impacts of the credit crisis of 2008 on nursing:

  • How has the re-entry of nurses into the market (due to lay-offs from non-nursing jobs, or lay-offs of spouses, etc.) affected employment prospects of new graduates?
  • How might the re-entry of nurses impact the long-run?
  • Will we see a drop in nursing school admissions?
Tonight’s chat will proceed as it normally does, but I thought that I’d post a few thoughts here.

Here’s the transcript of tonight’s chat:
