This book presents an overview of innovative initiatives to combat the nursing shortage that are being pioneered in a number of states, schools of nursing, and health care institutions. Among the strategies described are preceptor and mentoring arrangements, scholarship/work payback agreements, private and public funding initiatives to support the education of future nurses, and service/education partnership models. An international perspective is added by a chapter on initiatives in a hospital in Iceland.
