U.S. nursing in crisis


The United States is in the middle of a national crisis as the nursing shortage is expected to increase as the need for health care grows and the workforce ages.

However, being admitted into the UA nursing program is not easy, possibly discouraging Arizona students from stepping up to fill the vacancy.

According to the 2004 American College of Healthcare Executives report, 72 percent of hospitals are experiencing a nursing shortage.

With such discouraging statistics, the United States has been forced to recruit nurses from overseas, primarily in the Philippines, while many American students dream of becoming a nurse. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Wildcats want energy


Intensity, toughness keys to success

The No. 12 Arizona basketball team has had trouble playing in empty buildings in recent years, especially in the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena.

Now that Sept. 11, 2001 is in the rear-view mirror and George Bush won a second term, the Bush administration has run out of political excuses to substantially increase spending.

Demanded and pressured by market forces (foreign investors concerned about over-borrowing and the weak dollar), the Bush administration released a fiscal year 2006 budget proposal that attempts to stem America's rising deficit by cutting numerous discretionary programs that help the poor.

The idea of midwives may seem 17th century to most people. However, the idea is not so foreign for guest director Rich Elliot, a UA alumnus, who uses personal experience to put a human face on this ancient term in Arizona Reparatory Theater's latest production, "Midwives."

"Midwives," adapted from the best-selling novel of the same title by Chris Bohjalian, is the story of Vermont midwife Sibyl Danforth (played by theater production senior Carley Preston). Danforth's pivotal choice to save the life of a newborn at the risk of losing the mother's life causes her life long turmoil. [Read article]
