Difficult to answer because there are many variables. First let's clarify the question. Nursing shortage currently? In 3 years, 5, 10?

Yes, Wolverine's comment is probably true of all professions but probably not terribly helpful in terms of man power planning. In addition to trying to clarify the time frame of the projection that I mentioned in my last post it is also helpful to stratify the type of nurse, e.g., LPN, RN, CRNA, etc. There could easily be a surplus of one type and a shortage of another.
