The Nursing Shortage

Nursing Shortage

Nurse Day

There is a critical shortage of qualified nurses in all four counties within Texoma Health Foundation’s (THF) service-area, as well as the state and the nation.

The shortage is expected to directly impact the satisfaction of patients, increase the possibility of overcrowded emergency rooms and reduce the number of available hospital beds in times of need. THF is addressing this need by making it a priority of our Community Grants Program and building national partnerships to help establish Texoma as a leading area for our healthcare workforce to live and stay.
