Nursing Shortage is a problem we all should be aware of. There are many factors that may lead to a nursing shortage, such as having stressful and unsafe working environments, and our nurses are being overworked. This is a problem we should be aware of because it is affecting the patient care. Nurses would not have enough time to stay with a patient if they have more patients to worry about. Nurses play a big role in our hospitals and communities, “Nurses play significant roles in hospitals, clinics and private practices.
Even more important is the fact that the reports of the Institute of Medicine have a huge impact on how to evaluate the outcomes of health care the workers themselves. In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published a landmark report, " To Err is Human : creating a safe health care system." The outcome of the report is the statement about the necessity of measures to create safer health system.

As defined by our text book “an integrated physician model is the result of a series of partnerships between hospitals and physicians developed over time.” Since that is the text book definition lets try and clear it up just a little bit.

The report recognizes the numerous barriers preventing nurses from responding effectively to the rapid dynamism of both the health care setting and system and suggest ways of overcoming these barriers to better position nurses in leading change and advancing health (Institute of Medicine, 2011). Some of these barriers include regulatory and policy barriers as well as high turnover rates among nurses. Some states have different laws that regulate the scope of nursing practice. IOM’s report maintains that similar legislations are politically instigated and do not promote nursing education or improve patient safety. In addition, it regards these limits on the scope of nursing practice as an impediment to effective competition in the healthcare market and consequently recommends the intervention of the Federal Trade Commission in absorbing range of competent and cost-effective nurse practitioners (Institute of Medicine, 2011).In this regard, it recommends the establishment of nurse residency programs which will help nursing graduates in acquiring the skills and knowledge required in delivering quality and safe care that conforms to the established standard of nursing
