This isn’t just a US thing, there is a global shortage of nurses that is getting worse. Poor pay, long hours, difficult work - who would want to do it?

Perhaps firing nurses who are pro-choice for vaccines is not the best idea then.

Given recent experience with the hospital for my father, I would say the nurses continue to do more of the 'doctoring' without the doctor salary.

Like most of the jobs 'we can't keep people' in, pay them more. I respect nurses more than I respect most doctors.

Burnout is and always has been an issue in nursing. What this article utterly fails to acknowledge? Currently, large numbers of nurses who are otherwise willing to work are quitting en masse because of mandates that they get the COVID jab. When about a third of the workforce has refused to get the shot thus far and then is threatened with termination for not taking the shot, surprise! Lots quit.

This article completely ignores the elephant in the room: nurses quitting because they refuse to take mRNA injections, due to the damage they witness the jabs causing to patients.

They are demonstrating a reduced capacity to do properly their work, believing crappy conspiracies and not being able to properly consider scientific information heavily indicate that they are not exactly the part of the working force that actually improves things.

This article completely ignores the elephant in the room: nurses quitting because they refuse to take mRNA injections, due to the damage they witness the jabs causing to patients.

So you think the vast majority of the doctors and nurses (that obviously support the vaccines) are not quitting their jobs because they are all in a conspiracy? and the tiny minority that don't even have any data to support their mistaken opinions are right? that does not make any sense. It is extremely fortunate your scenario is mistaken.

Willful ignorance, in being unsustainable to the species, is evil.

That applies much more to people that systematically reject the scientific consensus based on completely mistaken conclusions based on incorrect pseudo-knowledge and easy to identify disqualifying bias.

When you openly reject the best people in their fields that have all the data to support their conclusions and that include the members of every single institution of science and medicine, just because you want to believe they are all in a conspiracy that pays them trilions (since its world wide) to let them poison their own friends and family, only so the companies can make billions (?) in profits you are already accepting you don't want to be rational. This becomes worse when you blindly accept as trust worthy baseless claims from scammers, thieves and charlatans that have been repeatedly proved to lie for their own profit, just because they say something you like.

Trying to make appeals of authority while being hopelessly ignorant about the whole topic is not believable either, there are multiple studies proving the strong effect of social distancing measures, masks, vaccines, etc. in the fight against the pandemic, remaining ignorant about this evidence is not more than an excuse by now. If you already are aware of your bias and instead of correcting it you embrace it and want other people to make the same mistake is absolute madness, almost as bad as thinking every PCR kit have the same parameters and have to run on the same number of cycles, even a technician with a week of experience would easily understand.

Also, attacking other users is against the rules, as it was said, keeping doing it and then complaining about getting punished for not following the rules is not even funny.

Rather than respond to the above comment, I'll just ask any reader which 'leading experts' they'd rather trust? Those who are VERY well paid, well protected, and in unelected positions of authority ... or those whistleblowers who sacrificed all to spread the word? — Doctors, researchers, inventors of the same technologies being used against us, healthcare workers, former managers of Big Pharma, former administrators of regulatory agencies, and journalists, and at least one Nobel Laureate thrown in — Kary Mullis, inventor of PCR, was a fierce critic of Fauci.

New word for the day ... 'p-hacking'. Those familiar with statistical studies will recognize that. It seems like only yesterday that the Obokata-Rikken-Harvard-Nature scandal was in the news. In a publish or perish industry, show me the incentives, and with a little p-hacking, I'll show you the outcome. And yes, billions, if not trillions of dollars are being sloshed around among the big players at our expense.

Some of us are genuinely confused and scared. But make no mistake, not all of us are stupid ... or corrupt beyond redemption.
