Creating Disability Inclusive Work Environments For Our Aging Nursing Workforce

 
 
     The workforce is aging, and the implications of an older nursing
 
 workforce are profound. As nurses age, injuries and disabilities are
 
more prevalent. If disabilities were more commonly recognized and
 
accommodated in the design of our nursing work environments,
 
we could meet future needs. This article explores the literature on
 
accommodations for an aging workforce, reports disabilities
 
commonly seen in this population, and introduces universal design.
