New Publications Focus on Nursing, Health Care Workforce Trends

The National Center for Health Workforce Analysis has posted two new publications focused on health care workforce trends. The U.S. Nursing Workforce: Trends in Supply and Education presents data on the supply, distribution and education of the U.S. nursing workforce. The report includes information on both the registered nurse and licensed practical/vocational nurse workforces, presenting an analysis of recent trends in the nurse supply and the production of new nurses nationally and by state. The Compendium of Federal Data Sources to Support Health Workforce Analysis summarizes 19 federal data sources that can be used to support health workforce analysis and is designed to help those interested in the health workforce understand how to use the data. Both the Compendium  and the U.S. Nursing Workforce can be downloaded from the National Center’s website.
