Even through a long day busy work in the hospital with the best shoes for nurses (means the best support), nurses still feel tired because of the nursing shortage. But recently, the need for nurses working at hospitals declined statewide and in almost all metropolitan areas. Local experts gave several reasons for the trend. Better pay has helped attract more students to nursing school. More graduates are seeking fewer available jobs. And more medical care is being delivered in outpatient settings, so hospitals need fewer nurses.
