Christa Monkhouse, an IAHSA colleague in Switzerland, every week posts a blog on Changing Aging called Monkhouse Mondays.   She covers may different topics and this week talked about the results of a recent Swiss study showing that 50% of the nurses in that country are due to retire in the next 10 to 15 years.

This could cause a tremendous nursing shortage.  Thus Christa has coined a new meaning for the medical term DNR.  DO NOT RETIRE.   As we all know, Switzerland is not alone in facing this tremendouse workforce challenge.     What efforts are being undertaken in your country to counter this trend???
