OUR TIME DAILY TRANSLATION
We've heard you say it many times: "Politics is like a foreign language." Well, we agree.
Each week, we summarize, simplify, and interpret different major news stories and how they affect our generation. We'll give you our take, and you can decide for yourself.
The Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. ObamaCare) is expected to expand health insurance to 32 million Americans over the next decade.
The Association of American Medical College predicts that the country will have 63,000 too few doctors as soon as 2015.
In anticipation of the shortage of family doctors in many parts of the country, nurse practitioners are preparing to fill the gap by handling a greater proportion of our society’s medical services.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE
America’s health care industry is going to need more medical personal to address the needs of the millions of Americans soon to be covered by the Affordable Care Act.
OUR TIME OPINION
Not only can nurses fill the gap left by the shortage of doctors, but training and employing young Americans to become nurses will help us address the staggeringly high unemployment numbers faced by our generation.
