Nursing Trend And Issue Discussion

Discussion #3
The United States and other countries are experiencing nursing shortages. To help ease the shortage, many resources are spent on recruiting foreign nurses.

  • What are the reasons for these shortages? If the United States and other industrial nations put their resources into increasing nurse retention, would the need to recruit foreign nurses decrease? Why or why not?
  • Choose one of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and discuss how a community nurse can work toward achieving that goal.

Discussion #4
As healthcare organizations become more complex and our focus on the patient experience expands, nurses are leading and participating in evidence-based practice (EBP) projects and quality improvement (QI) initiatives with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

  • In what ways is EBP applied where you work or where you do clinicals?
  • Discuss the findings of a QI initiative or study from either your clinical location/hospital website or another online source.
