"The Air Force is 502 nurses, or 14 percent, short of its authorized strength of 3,673, according to the Air Force Surgeon General’s Office. The dental corps is 26 percent short, and the biomedical science corps is 14 percent short."

I hope this equates to more money.

Where are you getting these numbers?
 
The numbers are probably accurate, but there are shortages in healthcare in the civilian sector nation wide. At last quote, for every 3 nurses that retired, only 1 nurse replaced them in nursing school. We all know there are shortages in dentists. There are some places where there is saturation and others were there is a dearth.

The military is not immune to all the ails of civilian life whether they want to admit it or not.
