Action to tackle nursing shortage

3rd December 2008

RCN Scotland is calling on the Scottish government to set up a national forum, which would include representatives of employers, nurses, professional organisations, trade unions and government, to try to address the threat of a future skills shortage by collecting nursing workforce data.
