Inside the Nursing Crisis

 
The first wave of baby boomers is starting to retire, and the healthcare system is bracing itself for the vast number of people who will soon need critical care. In addition, more Americans will likely have insurance available to them under new healthcare reforms. Mix in an aging workforce and the diminishing pool of nursing school faculty, and it adds up to a potentially dangerous situation. How dangerous? The United States may face a critical shortage of nearly a quarter of a million nurses by 2025, according to many experts.

WCNY’s new four-part series, “Inside the Nursing Crisis,’’ will start at 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 6, on WCNY channels 24.1 and 24.4 (HD) and continue at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 13, 20 and 27. The documentary examines this serious issue and asks some of the nation’s top nursing experts and hospital administrators for solutions to avert this healthcare crisis.

 

Crouse Hospital's Chief Nursing Office Mary Agnew, RN, MS, CNS, CNAA-BC; Crouse Hospital College of Nursing Director Ann Sedore, PhD, RN, CHE; and other Crouse nurses were interviewed for the program this summer and may be included in any of the four segments.
