Global nursing shortages
Buchan, J. (2002) Global nursing shortages, BMJ, vol. 324, , pp. 751-752,
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.
