Nursing Shortage Burnout-Avoid The Crisis


Calling all nurses! Do you work nights, weekends and holidays? Do you work overtime every week to pay the bills? Or maybe you work overtime because there isn’t enough staff and you feel responsible when your co-workers have to work short-handed. Do you have nursing shortage burnout?

When will the shortage end?

According to the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics;

By the year 2022, more than 500,000 baby boomer RNs will retire. This drop in the nursing workforce will present a need for 1.1 million new RNs to avoid the nursing shortage.nursing shortage burnout

1.1 million!!! You’ve got to be kidding. These numbers are of catastrophic proportion. 2022 is just four short years away.

As a nurse, you may be thinking all you have to do is hang in there and work overtime for only three more years. Right now, you may want some overtime to help pay the bills. But I assure you that at the end of 3 years you will have the dreaded nursing shortage burnout.

The nursing shortage is not going to end in 2022; it is only going to become an insurmountable problem. Nursing schools are also affected by the nursing shortage. Nurses teach in schools and the lack of nurses to run the programs is also causing issues.

Nursing schools across the nation are turning down applicants to the tune of 56,000 highly qualified undergraduates. The rejected applicants carry excellent GPAs.

Nursing shortage burnout

The nursing shortage is not going to end. You will be working overtime much longer than three years, and eventually,emergency room nurse you will be required to step up your game to include “on call” shifts. What else will hospitals do? They can’t just let sick patients lie in a bed without care, and since you are working for an institution, they will put the heavy weight on you to help solve the problem.

What will you do? You enjoy nursing, and you became an RN to help others. But at what expense will you stay in this profession? You have become a victim of the system and your family, your health and your license may suffer.

On September 6, 2018, I retired from ER nursing. I am a baby boomer RN.  The hours and workload were becoming too much for me to handle physically. There was no way I could continue for 4 or 5 more years

Take care of you first

What about you? Are you a generation x, millennial or a baby boomer and how long can you keep up with this increasing demand on your mind and body? NOW is the time to start a plan to save yourself from the evolution of health care.

I know, the caring part of you says you can’t abandon your co-workers. But the truth is each one of you can make the same choice to care for yourself. Do you think that staying in nursing is going to change what is coming around the corner? Nursing shortage burnout is real!

You are the temporary solution the hospitals will use, and they will not find another until they are forced to do so. Are you willing to sacrifice your entire being to solve their problem? I am going to offer you a way to rescue yourself from the nursing shortage burnout.

An alternative answeryour won't fail

Before I retired, I started an online business. I have begun so-called internet businesses before hoping to get rich quick with minimal effort, but none of them did what they promised.

Please hear me out. My offer is not a get rich quick scheme. It is a proven business. Just like a brick and mortar business in which you rent a storefront then you wait for people to come to you. Affiliate marketing is a more advanced business that has kept up with the changing times

Have you ever thought “I can’t do this” type of business? I am telling you that you can because it is a reliable business and will only fail if you quit. Let’s take a moment and I’ll let you know why you can do this work and why it is so important to start now.

Seize the gold mine

I ran across this company called Wealthy Affiliate when I was online looking for reviews on a different company. I fell into a gold mine of information, training, and support. Never before have I seen a company set up for the success of a community.

The owners Kyle and Carson started in 2005. They based the company around their beliefs and idea of “helping people succeed online,” and that is what they have done for 13 years. The company continues to evolve and grow and is a highly respected platform in the industry for building, managing and scaling websites.

Within the platform, it becomes rather simplistic. I can say this is because Kyle has designed unparalleled training that walks you through your website setup. Your road to success is paved step-by-step. One step leads to the next and before you know it you are well on your way.

The honest truth

I’ll take another moment to share the truth. I don’t want to deceive you in any way. Owning your business is not easy but having one that is internet based allows you to stay home and operate it a piece at a time. It takes work. Is your nursing job easy? NO, it is not!WA logo

I could sit here and write all day on the benefits of Wealthy Affiliate, but instead, I will let you take a look for yourself. It is free to sign up. Once inside you have seven days of full access to a world-class, time-tested website platform. After seven days you lose some privileges, but you may stay on free as long as you like.

You can set up a website on a free platform that you can transfer over to a .com if you choose to become a premium member. At this point, I like to be very honest about pricing. You do not need a credit card to sign up, and you do not need to invest your life savings if you want to become a premium member.

The fee $49 for each month, and if you want to pay yearly, you receive a discount. I know you can skimp back on some groceries or turn the AC or heat to a more affordable rate to come up with this small amount of money. The decisions you make NOW will reflect on your future.

Power-up and begin now

Beginning now is imperative. It takes time to set your business up with the training, and it takes time to make smiley heromoney. No one can guarantee what amount of time because you will get out of your business what you put in.

But let me give you a ballpark idea regarding the amount of time in months. Someone who works an affiliate marketing business full time and follows all the steps of training may expect to see income in 6 months on an average. So, if you are working this business part-time, you can double six months or triple it if you only operate it on the weekend. But please remember, this is less than the 3 years before the BIG nursing shortage burnout gets horrendous.

Make it happen

Maybe you are thinking “I don’t have time for this” you have kids in soccer and school functions, and you barely have time now. You don’t have any time right now because you have a nursing shortage burnout. You are exhausted all the time and have nothing to give back when you are off work. What will happen in 3 years when you are required to work overtime and completely miss your kiddos life? Now is the time to start and plan for your future. Don’t wait until you feel trapped into mandatory work time with no choice of when you will work.

The decision is ultimately yours to make. I am offering a way for you to take care of you and your family in a business that can potentially create an income comparable to and most likely above what you make now. A company that can help you stay home on holidays, weekends and nights with the ones you love.

Because I worked in nursing for 43 years and I know what is happening I am compelled to share this with every nurse in this world. I want you to have a way out of the job that is sucking you dry. If you love nursing as I did then work part-time. Take control of your life.

If you have any questions, I am here to help in any way I can. Please leave a comment, and I will get back to you shortly. Thank You for stopping by and please don’t wait too long because the world of nursing is changing fast.

P.S. I have a discount for you. When you decide to become a premium member in the first 7 days, I will give you a 59% discount on your first month. That is a tremendous saving which is only $19 dollars for the first month. This offer expires after the first 7 days so please give it some serious thought.

  1. I am sad to see that there is a nursing shortage going on in this country. Not only do you need them to fill the needs of patients. But I feel like more and more people are getting sick every year. My mom is a RN and the idea of her working even longer to cover the shortage is not pleasant to think about considering she is close to retiring. 

    While the money is nice, I can’t ever see myself working 60 to 80 hours a week for that kind of money. Id rather build something that is more sustainable for me and my body long term. I hope nurses can understand that and figure out how to implement your advice.

    • Jessie, Yes more people are getting sicker. The large number of baby boomers are aging and the longevity of our life is contributing to the increasing numbers of illness. 

      I hope those in need of an alternative do see my post. I want to help nurses empower themselves. 

  2. Working 9 to 5 is hard enough. Being a nurse that continuously requires working additional hours is even tougher. Shortage of nurses never ends because there are increased of patients EVERYDAY due to the processed food that we consumed. I would highly recommend nurses to start planning for their future by starting something that can give you a balance life. 

  3. Thank you for sharing this important article. I work as a math tutor in a local community college and I can say that there are less students applying for the nursing program there and your post gives me a better idea of why this is happening.

    I know that it’s hard to get into and that most students may feel like they don’t have the skills for it. I hope that college students get to your website and read this article because it is concerning to know that in a few years, we may have a shortage of people in medicine field. I will definitely use this topic on my next conversation with students that are not 100% decided on what to do in life, perhaps this inspires them!

    • Victor, I do hope it inspires them also. I have so loved nursing but it is not what it use to be. It is a business now and not a caring profession. This is why I am offering wealthy affiliate to the nursing profession. Nurses need to empower themselves and take control of their lives. 

      Thanks for stopping by. 

  4. Hi Laura, I can relate to being a baby boomer..and also realising how much energy you need to work to sustain a decent living.

    It is a pity that nurses are so overworked.  This happens in many other industries too.  For example construction workers and legal secretaries.  People are looking for a way out.  They want to work normal hours and still enjoy family life.  

    I totally understand where you are coming from and wish you all the best in your new venture with Wealthy Affiliate.


    • Stella,, yes this is happening everywhere. People are still trying to do a steady job when technology is leading us to online business. Because of this the ones working in the world every day have to more for less to keep businesses afloat. 

      Thanks for your input. I do appreciate you Stella. 

  5. Having just spent some time in hospital I recognise what you are saying.

    The nurses want to help, but they appear to be being pulled in different directions. I saw some nurses (actually most) running between rooms, running to the see a doctor before he/she left and then running to cover for another nurse who just had to go to the toilet.

    If I can see this from a 2 day stay in hospital then I am sure that it is a problem of major concern, worldwide!

    Your advice for nurses to prepare for the future is sound, however, they must be exhausted when they finish their shift, only to have to go home to a family wanting this and that.

    There must be a way!

    I am already a member of Wealthy Affiliate, and I can say that if anyone, not just a nurse were to join they have the advantage that they can schedule their work around the lessons they need to complete. Thus at all times they know where they are up to with their business.

    • Steve, The nursing shortage and the amount of work a nurse has to do while keeping people alive has risen to epic proportion. But nurses try so hard to do what is ethical. They just can not keep it up. This is my plea to all nurses to plan for their future and if they want to continue nursing they can work when they want to. Not when the hospital says they have to. 

      My heart goes out to all nurses. 

  6. I would definitely encourage absolutely anyone to sign up for Wealthy Affiliate, what do you have to lose.  

    You can sign up for free, I did so a long time ago but until now was not able to go premium due to circomstances, now that it has changed, I have decided to try to take control of my future.

    There is no B.S. get rich quick claims, nothing but the truth.  Hard work pays off.  So take the time and do the work and you will succeed.
