identified by bedside nurrse themselves and those that study them
given in complaints and concerns
contributing to the current Crisis shortage. However, those many
complaints and concerns can be consolidated into two alpha factors in which
all specifics are evident as subtextural.
The two Alpha
factors are intrinsically linked, making neither more Alpha than the other.
All attempts to address
the shortage are futile without addressing the two alpha factors in tandem.
Relief from the exertion of either alpha factor on the market in which
the labour resource [nursing] occurs will inevitably affect the other
alpha factor with which each alpha factor is inextricably liked.
Factor #1) Market Imperative and Earnings reflecting its Understanding:
The need of the nurse to compensation that meets market requirement.
Hypothesis of This
Market demand is
addressed through provision of adequate compensation for a nurse's work
within the environment in which it occurs thus meeting assurance of
vital and renewable labour source. See Earnings
Alpha Factor #2)
Environment in which Nursing Occurs: The need of the nurse to practice
her profession in a reasonable environment.
must be reasonable in its balance of work requirement. It must provide
freedom from fear , or the perception of fear, that any nurse
employer places the nurse and / or her patients at risk . The Environment
in which nursing is accomplished is affected by both concrete and intangible
factors. See Environment Further identified.
