Also Middlefield must ensure to increase the employee morale. Introduction – Middlefield Hospital’s employee turnover rate exceeds 20% and there are over 100 nursing vacancies. Some of the facts which might have caused the employee shortage are – 1. Opening of a new Hospital with better facilities and advanced technology for patient treatment and care. This has caused doctors to shift their patients from Middlefield to this new hospital.
Since 2003 nursing school enrollment has been declining at a steady rate (Williams & Torres, p. 283, 2010). Many times state and federal funded RN nursing programs at community colleges and state universities require high GPA to gain entry to the RN nursing program and this creates a barrier for students. Non-traditional nursing programs offered at technical or vocational colleges are more expensive many times but have easier admission rules. It is expected that if the nursing school graduates numbers do not increase there will be a nursing shortage in the
Upper Class: Each individual will go up in social class depending on their wealth and how much they earn within a year. Once you have started earning a certain amount of money or moved to a different occupation, you are more than likely to apply for private health care. Medical advances mean doctors can treat many more conditions, but new procedures, diagnostic methods, drugs and technology mean medical costs are increasing all the time. Some advantages and disadvantages of private health care are: Advantages: • No Queues-No need to wait. • Continuity of Care-you will be seen by the same consultant throughout your treatment.
However, an event that helped shape the future was the lives of women. For hundreds of years, women were down-graded and not deemed important. But, from the year 1914, the importance of women gradually kept increasing, resulting in women gaining new jobs, new responsibilities and a respectful place in society. In this essay, I will analyse five selected sources and determine whether the lives of women on the Home Front were greatly affected by the First World War. Firstly, employment for women throughout the war had a drastic improvement; many jobs became available for women to choose from.
Title IX also reduced the drop-out rate in high school by prohibiting schools from suspending, expelling, or discriminating against students who were pregnant. After Title IX, more girls were graduating from high school and going on to attend college or receive higher degrees. Before Title IX, the number of women attending colleges and receiving higher degrees was significantly lower than the number of men receiving bachelor and higher degrees. Since 1972, the number of women earning masters degrees and doctoral degrees almost doubled. Women earning medical, law, dental, veterinary science, and pharmacy degrees also rose dramatically.
However if title IX is examined from the original perspective, a different (original view) can be seen. The law has no difficulties being enforced for academic opportunities because that is what it is worded for. This is established by the fact that 55% of all students in college are now women and in the year 1970 only 41% of students were women (National Center for Education Statistics). Furthermore the effect of title IX is seen in only ten years with the total female population nearly doubling from 3,537000 in 1970 to 6,223000 in 1980. This trend only continued to the current statistics we have today where more than eleven million women are enrolled in institutions of higher education and only eight million men are enrolled at higher education institutions.
Mariama Koroma 09-22-09 Topic: The Impact Of Shortage Of Nurses Thesis Statement: The need for professional nurses is growing but the number of nurses continues to decline; this paper will take a careful look at the impact of the shortage of nurses in health care delivery. The growing professional shortage presents the most significant problem for the health care system today. An adequate supply of professional nurses is vital in ensuring access to quality in health care now and to the patient in the future. Study has shown that the labor market has undergone significant changes during the last decade. According to the study in the early 1990s(……………………………...) there was national shortage of professional nurses(…….).
Several of those issues began in the 1990s when changes in the health care system were implemented. Due to conflicts in funding, hospital staffs were greatly reduced. When facilities required more nurses such as times when there was an unexpected increase in patient admission, instead of hiring additional staff, mandatory overtime was used (Keenan, 2003). At the height of their need, the amount of practicing nurses has declined. With baby boomers reaching retirement age they will need health care services which only increases the demand for nurses.
The total number of surgeries performed is projected to increase as the population ages and requires more medical care. The baby boom generation will slowly comprise a larger portion of the population and they typically need more surgical procedures. New surgical procedures, such as those utilizing laser technology and fiber optics, will continue to be developed and implemented” (Surgical Technician Career, Job and Employment Information , 2012). In conclusion, the career I chose can be very challenging as well as satisfying. Many people overlook the important role that a surgical technician plays in a surgical procedure.
Indeed, it will be argued that gender inequalities have significant negative implications for the health of women around the world, including physical health and wellness issues, as well as mental health issues. Finally, the paper will conclude with a commentary and discussion of gender inequalities and their health impacts as reflections of patriarchal values within society. What Do We Know? Over the last several decades, there has been a major increase in the number of women obtaining paid employment (O'Campo, Eaton, & Muntaner, 2004, p. 585). Indeed, it has been argued that this increased participation in the labour market, as well as an increased awareness of issues of inequality between men and women, have changed gender relations (Scott, Crompton, & Lyonette, 2010, p. 1).
