Well, for starters:

- The World Health Organization (WHO)
- International Council of Nurses (ICN)
- Canadian Nurses Association (CNA)
- American Nurses Association (ANA)
- Royal College of Nursing (in the UK)

There's a shortage of nurses in Canada and the US. Some health authorities need more nurses but don't have the funding to hire them. In the US, the median age of a nurse is something like 46 - and 50% of them are closing in on retirement. Canada is in a similar situation. There won't be enough new nurses to replace them. Our aging population (e.g. the baby boomer generation which includes many nurses) will place further stress on the system.

Another factor is that there aren't even enough faculty places to educate everyone who wants to be a nurse i.e. more people want to be nurses than can actually be accommodated in nursing programs.

and this has been quoted for several years but doesn't help the ones looking for work gaining work and experience.
