Cyclone Conservatives: Iowa Nursing Shortage a Symptom, Not the Problem

Excerpted from this post at Cyclone Conservatives

By Tom Latham, Member of Congress... It is not news that America has
entered a nursing shortage. Last year over 118,000 nursing jobs were
left unfilled. Employers want to hire, but the pool of qualified
nurses just isn't big enough to fill all those jobs. What might be
surprising is that nursing schools, the very programs delivering these
qualified nurses to Iowa's hospitals, turned away more than 40,000
applicants last year alone. Why? Because they're full. The nursing
shortage isn't the problem, it's the symptom.
