Send Your Grandkids to Nursing School

I remember in the 80s, if you wanted to move to Australia it was almost impossible — unless you were a nurse. They had a huge nursing shortage, and being a nurse was the surest way to get a visa. Well, that time may now be upon us in the U.S. Of course, I’ve blogged extensively on the aging population, and various issues it presents. But one I hadn’t really paid attention to was that fact that the U.S. has already had a nursing shortage for years, and the growth of the elderly demographic is only going to make that problem more acute.
