Texas Public Radio: Texas expected to face nursing shortage by 2030

Texas nursing leaders anticipate that there will be a significant shortage of nurses to provide care by 2030. This is due, in part, to the aging of baby boomers and the retirement of nurses from the workforce. Texas Public Radio invited Dr. Cynthia O’Neal and Dr. Sara Gill, both UT Health San Antonio School of Nursing faculty members, to discuss this topic as guests on “The Source”, along with representatives from the Texas Nurses Association and Project Quest.
