Table 3 Comparative profiling tools Understanding cultural norms and diversity is just as important as understanding individuals. Dreher and Macnaughton 21 contend that cultural competence is really nursing competence. As communities become more diverse, it is important that leaders adopt strategies to teach, provide feedback, and motivate persons from different cultural backgrounds and different skill mixes. Leadership mentoring bridges the regulatory and subjective aspects of human resources management through the pairing of experienced leaders with novice leaders.
Abstract Aims and objectives This paper provides a context for this special edition. It highlights the scale of the challenge of nursing shortages, but also makes the point that there is a policy agenda that provides workable solutions.
Results An overview of nurse: The causes of shortages are multi-faceted, and there is no single global measure of their extent and nature, there is growing evidence of the impact of relatively low staffing levels on health care delivery and outcomes.
The main causes of nursing shortages are highlighted: Conclusions What now faces policy makers in Japan, Europe and other developed countries is a policy agenda with a core of common themes. First, themes related to addressing supply side issues: Second, themes related to dealing with demand side challenges.
The paper concludes that the main challenge for policy makers is to develop a co-ordinated package of policies that provide a long term and sustainable solution. Relevance to clinical practice This paper highlights the impact that nursing shortages has on clinical practice and in health service delivery.
It outlines scope for addressing shortage problems and therefore for providing a more positive staffing environment in which clinical practice can be delivered. The scarcity of qualified health personnel, including nurses, is being highlighted as one of the biggest obstacles to achieving health system effectiveness.
Inthe Literature review for nurses shortage Health Organisation devoted the whole of the World Health Report to the negative impact that human resources shortages was having on global health care WHO Against this backdrop of growing concern about shortages of health personnel, this paper focuses on one of the most critical components of the workforce: As such, it provides a context for the other papers in this special edition of the Journal of Clinical Nursing.
These other papers focus in detail on specific nurse workforce issues and priorities facing policy makers and researchers in Australia, Canada, Japan, the USA and elsewhere.
They emphasise the need to develop a better understanding of the specific dynamics in organisational and country level nursing labour markets if policy makers are to be well informed about the judgements they must make about what will be effective policy solutions for the nursing workforce.
This paper provides a broader perspective, highlighting the scale of the challenge of nursing shortages, but also making the point that there are many common challenges and a policy agenda that points to workable solutions. WHO also calculated a threshold in workforce density below which consistent coverage of essential interventions, including those necessary to meet the health-related Millennium Development Goals MDGswas very unlikely.
The proportional shortfalls were greatest in sub-Saharan Africa, although numerical deficits were very large in South-East Asia because of its population size WHOp. WHO also highlighted that shortages often coexist in a country with large numbers of unemployed health professionals: WHO concluded that the shortage crisis has the potential to deepen in the coming years.
It noted that demand for service providers will escalate markedly in all countries — rich and poor: Different international agencies, at different times, have developed different definitions, some related to educational level, some to years of training. This section of the paper provides an overview of nurse: The data must be used with caution.
The country level data collated by WHO which is reported in this paper may in some countries include midwives under the broad category of nurses; for some, it is also likely that the data may include auxiliary and unlicensed personnel.
The analysis presented below should therefore be taken as illustrative of a broad pattern of regional variations, rather than an accurate representation of each country. In this paper, data are analysed at the level of main WHO Regions: Full details of the country allocation can be found on the WHO website: Figure 1 illustrates the minimum, maximum and average nurse: For example, in the African region, Seychelles and South Africa report much higher ratios of nurse to population than do other countries in the region.The nursing shortage in the United States of America: an integrative review of the literature Heather Janiszewski Goodin MScN RN Assistant Professor, School of Nursing, Capital University, Columbus, Ohio; Registered Nurse, Columbus Children’s Hospital, there is national shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs).

The Purpose of the Literature Review - The purpose of the literature review is to identify and highlight the important variables, and to document the significant findings from earlier research that will serve as the foundation on which the conceptual or theoretical framework for the current investigation can be based and the hypotheses developed (Cavana, Delahaye & Sekaran ).
