I'm interested in meaningful discussion
I am a dedicated structural design engineer, aged 36. I spent my childhood playing with lego and building structures, which is ultimately what led to me deciding to pursue it as a career. I am interested in reading, computers, software usage, Internet browsing, blogging, traveling, as well as meeting and interacting with people both in person and over the internet.

IMO, some nurses are paid well and some are not. I think that depends on the demand for them and the current economic situation of the country where they work.
What do you think?

Eh, nurses in the US are actually very well paid, and trained to a high level. Compared to the UK, for example, a US RN has a much broader scope of practice and training, and an NP is more like a GP.

I’m locked out of the article but I suspect that it’s more about LPNs and CNAs. These are the lowest levels of nursing and they are very poorly compensated despite the fact that what they do is absolutely essential.

Nursing in the US is a solid career.

In the UK an NP is like a doctor, a nurse has a degree a years of training, HCAs are perhaps what you’re mistaking UK nurses for?
(In the US) No real competition in healthcare is the problem. All hospitals in a given area give about the same mediocre care and receive almost the same reimbursement from government and private insurance. The only positive things to change in the patient experience in thirty years are you are more likely to get your own room and the beds are nicer. Most businesses strive to hire well and to keep the best employees. Not so in healthcare. It is a cast system, whoever can give basic care at that licensing level for the least pay wins. The only nursing shortage is for new nurses. After a certain time when you have both training and experience, you are replaced for lower paid and more easily manipulated nurses.

You are very right as to whoever can give the basic care at that licensing level for the least pay wins. That isn’t just nurses in healthcare. That’s PAs and doctors as well. The term “provider” is now used to encompass far more than just docs and hospitals/clinics don’t go to great lengths to make sure the patient knows you aren’t seeing a doctor but rather a PA, etc. It doesn’t mean poor care but there are many a diagnosis that needs someone with more education and more experience to come to the correct diagnosis. Again, back to what you said: lowest level of licensing that is allowable is what will be used.
Nurses can be very well paid. It depends on the state they work in. The South is not great for nurses. Arizona is quite good considering the lower cost of living. Nurses here enjoy an upper middle class life style. But it is hard work. There are opportunities for them to get advanced training and make around 130k a year plus good benefits.

And yet there’s a nursing shortage. So much for “plenty of people...” It’s interesting that there always seems to be justification for why female dominated professions are paid less. No matter how weak the argument.
