Projected Supply, Demand and Shortages of Registered Nurses: 2000-2020
Using data on supply trends drawn from the 2000 National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses, supply and demand projections of registered nurses (RNs) for the period 2000 through 2020 are the subject of this report released in July 2002. These new projections show that a shortage of FTE registered nurses, previously projected to begin around 2007, was already evident in the year 2000.
The report includes
Projections of RN supply and demand, both national and State-specific, for the years 2000 through 2020
Identification and discussion of the driving forces and trends underlying the projected supply and projected demand
Relevant charts, maps and tables, presented both in the body of the report and in an appendix.
