There has been a lot of recent discourse on the healthcare shortage in the United States due to the pandemic, but two U-M experts argue instead that it is a shortage of safe working environments. Deena Kelly Costa and Christopher Friese, U-M School of Nursing professors, discuss their position in a faculty Q&A, arguing it’s a lack of safe hospital working environments that are causing nurses to leave the profession. In addition, the faculty experts discuss their recommendations to increase nurse retention and the structural barriers students face when applying to medical school.
