We Need More Nurses

Huffington Post on the shortage of primary care doctors. At the Town Hall meetings last year I heard more than one opponent of health care reform say that we couldn’t insure all Americans because we don’t have enough doctors.

It’s long overdue to recruit and support med students and doctors, but don’t underestimate what nurses can do to ease the strain and reach patients. In home care, we provide a remedy for the revolving door nature of our present system, and we bring together the fragmented aspects of care when we spend time with the patient. We are part of the solution to the health care crisis.
