Education More Important Than Immigration to Solve Nursing Shortage, Research Shows
Date:7/1/2008

New research shows that a majority of US healthcare consumers would be prepared to pay higher taxes to fund increased education facilities for American nurses. The study also sampled consumer attitudes to the recruitment of nurses from overseas.

Carlsbad, Calif. (PRWEB) July 1, 2008 -- Fully 96% of the US respondents to a recent morefocus group healthcare survey are concerned about the on-going effects of a nursing shortage. 84% believe that the Government should act now to increase nursing education access, while 65% of this group (55% of the total respondents), would be prepared to pay higher taxes.

The short-form survey is part of the morefocus group's on-going health and lifestyle research initiative that has been designed to study the changing attitudes of US consumers to healthcare, leisure, education and work. The survey was carried out over a six week period ending on June 25th, 2008, and delivered across a mix of over 100 health and lifestyle websites reaching some two million consumers.

"A particularly interesting outcome of the study was the opinion consistency between the respondents initiating the survey from both health and lifestyle websites," said Dr. Regan Carey, the morefocus' SVP who led the study. He continued, "From these data there is a clear indication that, irrespective of the respondent's health status at the point that they completed the survey, there is concern that hospitals and clinics are not fully-staffed with well trained and educated professionals."

On the questions centering on relaxing immigration requirements for nurses from overseas, versus reducing the educational requirements for American-trained nurses, there was a dramatic response differential. Only 27.7% of the respondents felt that a reduction in educational requirements was an option, with 59.4% supporting an easing of immigration restrictions.
