Special Focus on the Nursing Workforce

The Changing Workforce, Workplace and Nature of Work: Implications for Health Human Resource Management* - The exodus of critical workers is perhaps even more acute in the healthcare sector. In Canada, where nearly a third of the nursing workforce is 50 or over, we need to replace approximately 70,000 nurses - more than 25% of the current nursing workforce in Canada - in order to maintain an adequate nursing infrastructure (O'Brien-Pallas et al. 2003). However, the aging workforce also means that elder care supports and compassionate care leaves are in increased demand, all of which lead to severe recruitment challenges.
