The article reports that nurses in Australia vote for practical and effective efforts to deal with the increasing pressure felt within the Australian nursing. The Australian community wants a nursing workforce that is sufficient in number to meet their need for nursing care considering the impending retirement of nearly 40% of the nursing workforce over the next ten to fifteen years. As the country faces its next federal election, nurses are calling for a national workforce strategy linking educational places to workforce supply and demand.
