My husband is a trauma nurse and has been for many years. He got his education through the Navy and after he got finished with serving, he was a nurse. He was called up to active duty a while back and served a tour overseas at a hospital. He never saw combat. The nursing shortage in America varies from place to place. There are a few positions open at the hospital my husband is at. In other parts of the country, no nurses can be found. When he was looking for a job in this area before we met, he sent out applications and resumes and got job offers as far away as Florida and New York.
