   This is a manufactured crisis

Stress. Short staffing. Forced overtime.

These are just some of the conditions that are leading to unsafe working conditions for nurses, other health care, and all frontline workers in our hospitals.

From hospitals to pundits, cries of a “nursing shortage” are echoing across the healthcare industry and the country. But we know the truth — just as much as anyone who has worked in a job where they are unsafe.

The US is not feeling a true nursing shortage, only a shortage of nurses willing to risk their licenses or their patients’ lives by working in unsafe conditions.

This is a manufactured crisis. Hospital executives would like you to believe that the blame is on nurses, while they understaff units and shifts to maximize profits — leaving nurses with morally distressing choices about how to allocate care.


Here’s what we’re asking you to do today, Anthony. We need your help to challenge this myth, and we want to flood social channels to help combat this misleading and dangerous narrative.

Will you share this post about the so-called nursing shortage? The more people that share this post, the more that we can fight this myth that puts nurses in greater danger and moral distress.

Let’s get the word out, Anthony. We appreciate your solidarity and unity.

In gratitude,

National Nurses United
