This paper examines the nursing shortage in the health care industry, the use of collaborative team approach in care delivery using a study that aims specifically to this problem and offer recommendations for employee retention. Many health care professionals are wondering why shortage transpired when managed care cost initiatives, implemented throughout the country, are dramatically decreasing the length of patient stays (Upenieks, 2003). In fact, such a situation should be resulting in a nursing oversupply. As the nursing shortage ensues, the need for recruiting and retaining highly skilled nurses committed to the organization will become necessary to maintain high-quality patient care. The recent national nurse shortage has resulted in higher nurse workloads; fewer support resources, greater nursing dissatisfaction, and burnout, making it more difficult to provide optimal patient care (Upenieks, 2003).

To produce high quality nurses that are ready to compete in the professional world there needs to be a focus on preparing them for the emotional and mental challenges they will face as they enter into the healthcare environment. In addition to being not just mentally prepared, every modern job requires team focused employees. This is even more important in a healthcare setting where there are literally lives depending on the ability of how the team works together when facing challenges. With the amount of information and specialty knowledge that needs to be known in today’s world, workplaces rank the ability to work together in teams as one of the most important aspect they look for in new employees. “...the vast majority of employers (88%) are looking for a “cultural fit” over skills in their next hire as more and more companies focus on attrition rates” (Forbes, 10/04/2012) While important, this certainly does not supercede the ability to have excellent practical nursing skills.

This turning point in history has given us the ability to develop a career that will have lifelong benefits into retirement.

Overall, turning points in history will continue to shape how nurse midwifery is delivered to women. We as providers need to strive to empower women to take control of their experiences while providing them a safe and successful child birthing experience that decreases the maternal and infant mortality rate.
Nursing care has always been patient focused to ensure the best possible care is given. Conversely, Alberta Health Services (AHS) is currently enforcing Workforce Transformation Model (WT) that takes as its priority economic efficiency. This results in a decreased number of highly skilled nursing staff and an increased number of staff with lesser scopes of practice, and a smaller skill set (Canadian Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta; CARNA, 2013). In contrast, two other nursing care delivery models are discussed in this paper in addition to staff mix, the possible impact of WT on nurses and patient care, and how registered nurses (RNs) can continue to provide optimal care through leadership. In today's cost-driven world, staff mix ratios are not only realistic but imperative to effective nursing care.
