Q. Can you help me find some sources on the demand for nurses and why there is a demand?


To find information about the nursing shortage due to the population aging, you can try the keywords:

  • nursing shortage
  • nursing trends--United States

An online source is the Occupational Outlook Handbook. (Type RN or LPN in the search handbook box and then see the Job Outlook section.)

To find articles, check the databases below. Start at the Library Home Page and click on Health Sciences. If you are off-campus you will need to use your 14 digit Library Card number, which can be found on your ID Card.

Helpful Hint:  Type Nursing Shortage in the databases above.

Here's a website source from the American Association of Colleges of Nursing about the nursing shortage.

Thank you for using ASK US. For more information contact your campus librarians.
