Nursing shortage is topic of meeting at UTHSC

The acute nursing care and nursing continuing education departments at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) will host a fall dinner conference from 5:30 to 8:45 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, in Room 1.463 in the School of Nursing building on the UTHSCSA campus, 7703 Floyd Curl Drive.

Beth Ulrich, Ed.D., R.N., C.H.E., regional vice president and editor of NurseWeek Publishing, will be the featured speaker. She will discuss the most recent NurseWeek AONE Survey of more than 7,000 nurses addressing the nursing workforce shortage. She will discuss the question "what does the data reveal nationally and locally in Texas?" The evening provides attendees the opportunity to network and discuss the impact of the nursing shortage on patient care, quality outcome, retention and recruitment issues. Attendees also will have the opportunity to discuss interventions to support, retain and promote those in the profession.
