The state of Illinois is facing a nursing shortage. 


University of Illinois Professor, Dr. Robert Bruno is the co-author of a new study that indicates that 34% of current Illinois nurses are considering leaving the profession due to what the study calls, Unsafe Staffing, that is to say, understaffing and overwork.



The study titled Illinois Nursing in Crisis was published by the Illinois Economic Policy Institute and is available on EPI's website.
