Haiti full of doctors, but nurses in short supply

Nurses are in short supply to work in medical aid efforts in Haiti, according to a CNN report. A nursing school on the grounds of the general hospital was crushed in the earthquake, killing some of the people who would be giving care now. The flood of outside volunteers is mostly doctors, not nurses.
