Retention/Recruitment & Canadian Nursing Shortage
An 8 page research paper that discusses Canada’s nursing shortage. There is currently a severe nursing shortage in all of the industrialized countries of the Western world, including Canada. Experts predict that the nursing shortage in Canada will worse over the course of the next decade and this prediction appears to be accurate as the number of registered nurses (RNs) working the rural regions of Canada have already decreased from 65.2 per 10,000 in population in 1994 to 62.3 in 2000 (Belkus and MacLeod, 2004). This literature review focuses on strategies that are being implemented regarding the key issues of retention and recruitment of nurses, as these factors have a significant influence on how the nursing shortage impacts specific organizations.
