I am in need of suggestions on how to find a PhD supervisor / advisor in the interest of nursing workforce, labor economics. Most programs and nurses with PhD are focused on clinical issues, but my interest is on nurses themselves and their work environment. Schools that focus more on this subject as well as faculty with such experience is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I really don't know this but my suggestion would be to look at the affiliations of the researchers publishing studies that interest you. Then find out if they are faculty at their affiliated universities and if they chair or serve on PhD committees (their emails are often listed in the author information).

You could also search dissertations on topics of interest then look up their committee members, then find out if and where those committee members serve as faculty. If you don't currently have access to a university library service maybe see if you can visit one in person and chat with their research librarian (they are amazing people).

I am working on a PhD and also interested in this topic.   I would talk to a nurse that has a PhD outside of nursing to fulfill your request.  

TiffyRN gave you some good suggestions.  You can also review articles related to the topic and contact the author about their results. 

Hope that helps!
