Nurse recruitment problems at 'crisis point

Difficulties in recruiting and retaining nurses are at crisis levels with over 1,500 vacancies, a conference has heard.
The problem is most acute in the specialised elderly care sector and experts said retaining staff in areas where there are high stress levels, due to shortages, is a major issue.
Managing Director of PCQ Nurse Recruitment Paul Chandler said that the situation around the country was bleak and in the elderly sector alone, there were around 1,000 nursing vacancies.
