Less Americans seeking health information

The proportion of American adults seeking information about a personal health concern from a source other than their physician dropped to 50% in 2010, down from 56% in 2007, according to a recent national study by the Center for Studying Health System Change.


Nursing workforce growing

The number of RNs ages 23 to 26 grew 62% between 2002 and 2009, according to a new study in Health Affairs. If the trend continues, the study projects that the nurse workforce will grow at roughly the same rate as the population through 2030.
