A severe shortage of nurses is being experienced. Part of the problems is connected to the relentless practices of the so-called healthcare organisations including medical groups and hospitals which often insist on 16 hour days with little or no notice. Another part of the problem rests with doctors who continue to offput more and more medical decisions to nurses leading to patient neglect. Finally, the nurses themselves feel exploited and underpaid compared to the workloads and responsibilities being passed on them. This bibliography presents carefully selected review citations to the nursing literature which are then indexes by subject, title and author.
