SAN DIEGO, Jan. 25 (UPI) -- No matter who is elected the next U.S. president any effort to increase access to healthcare will be hampered by a doctor and nurse shortage, a report warns.
AMN Healthcare, a U.S. healthcare staffing company, reviewed the healthcare reform proposals of seven leading presidential candidates from both parties.
None of the candidates have yet proposed initiatives to increase physician and nurse supply to meet current staffing shortages, or address the increased need for healthcare services that would arise under a reformed system increasing access to care, the report said.
The United States currently needs 120,000 nurses, and the deficit is projected to be at least 350,000 by 2020.
