Nursing Career News

A study done by the U.S. Bureau of Health Professions indicates that by 2020, the U.S. nursing shortage will grow to more than 800,000 registered nurses. How can we put a serious dent in stemming this dangerous tide unless nurses take an active role in seeking possible solutions to the problem? This blog will attempt to openly discuss and address major issues confronting the nursing profession, health care issues, and nursing education.

Scholarships for Nursing Students

Do you know what Google supplemental pages are? It could be called Google purgatory I suppose. I've heard some call it Google Hell. It's the place where Google dumps pages they think are "unimportant" and then they never show up in search results.

This morning I discovered that Google thinks scholarships for nursing and allied healthcare professions students are "unimportant" and they put a Nursing Scholarship Resources into Google Hell- aka "supplemental".

Shhhhhh -- what I'm about to show you is secret! That's right - you'll never find this by searching Google for "Nursing Scholarships" because it won't ever appear in the search results because they don't think it's important enough for you to know.

It doesn't matter that I spent days personally searching nursing associations and every online resource I could find, reading new laws to learn about loan forgiveness for nurses going into areas of critical need or anything else. This information is "unimportant". Who cares about scholarships for nurses after all! Why should it be worthwhile to try to help nurses further their education or help other students interested in healthcare professions afford to go to school after all?

There's only a severe nursing shortage - for that matter there's a critical need for graduates of every sort of health profession you can possibly imagine.... but no matter... we'll keep this strictly between us because Google doesn't want you to see this. Close your eyes. Hush. Dont bookmark what I'm about to show you. Don't share it with friends. Don't pay any attention to this because you aren't supposed to know it exists- right?
