Nursing Shortage in the State of Nevadar
In Nevada, there has been a significant shortage of nurses and other healthcare professionals. This has forced other employers to stretch their hands I such workforces. For example, some of the employees, such as the hospital and the nursing school, have decided to leave their vacancies open for the extended period as they wait for the qualified applicants. In rural areas, more of the nurses are needed. For the past decade, more of the RNs began to work in Nevada to help reduce nursing shortages (Barnow, Piatak, & Trutko, 2013) . Partially, it helped to elevate the deficits but not eliminate it. For the past years, the proportion of the nurses to the Nevada resident is still growing, but it lags as compared to other states. To fight shortages of nurses, there has been an increased emphasis on nursing education. For example, training them, and recruiting more to join the nursing profession to step up the par with the workforces in other states(Barnow, Piatak, & Trutko, 2013) .
