I will not return to nursing until one of the two following occur: 1. The historical and current gender discrimination against men in nursing is acknowledged and anti-discrimination laws preventing the same are efficaciously promulgated; or, 2. A verifiable and significant nursing shortage develops that is not addressed by the health care industry by promulgating the immigration to the USA of large numbers of foreign nurses. This has been the traditional method of addressing the nursing shortage by the health care industry as it keeps working conditions poor, wages low, job security poor, and enhances their "monopoly capitalistic" control of the nursing labor market.
