" New Approaches for Delivering Primary Care Could Reduce Predicted Physician Shortage"

RAND researchers analyzed the potential impact of two emerging models of care — the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) and the nurse-managed health center (NMHC) — on future shortages of primary care physicians. The PCMH delivers primary care using a team of providers, including physicians, advanced practice and other nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, nutritionists, social workers, educators, and care coordinators. NMHCs, also known as nursing centers or nurse-led clinics, are managed and operated by nurses, with nurse practitioners functioning as the primary providers.

Ohio’s 2003-2004 Statewide Nursing Workforce Survey

The Ohio Board of Nursing completed an extensive survey of Ohio’s nurses in 2003 - 2004. This survey was undertaken in an effort to obtain accurate, up-to-date information about the nursing workforce in Ohio. In August of 2003 a survey was mailed to each of the 185,000 people holding an active nursing license in Ohio. Nearly 96,000 completed surveys were returned by December, 2003. The high return rate (53%) is very good for survey-type research and indicates a high level of professional commitment on the part of Ohio’s nurses.

HRSA: Supply and Demand Projections of the Nursing Workforce: 2014-2030

This report presents projections of supply of and demand for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPNs) in 2030, with 2014 serving as the base year. These projections highlight the inequitable distribution of the nursing workforce across the United States, as recent research1,2 shows that nursing workforce represents a greater problem with distribution across states than magnitude at the national level. Projections were developed using the Model (HWSM).

ANA Nurses By the Numbers

ANA’s Nurses by the Numbers™


Number of Nurses with a Baccalaureate Degree Rapidly Growing

For the first time, the number of students graduating with a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree exceeded those graduating with an associate’s degree (ADN), according to a study led by health care economist Peter Buerhaus. Using data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), a system of interrelated government surveys, researchers found that beginning in 1984, the number of BSN and ADN graduates moved in the same direction and remained relatively stable until 2002, and then changed significantly from 2002 through 2012. The number of ADN graduates exceeded the number of BSN graduates over this entire period until 2011, when the number of BSN graduates exceeded the number of ADN graduates for the first time.

Nursing Supply and Demand Through 2020 - Georgetown University 2015

This report is similar to the general approach in the Clinical Specialty Supply Model (CSSDM) developed by the National Center for Health Workforce Analysis, of the Heath Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). In addition, since only 70 percent of licensed nursing professionals work in nursing, we estimated the annual probability of nursing professionals changing careers and added that to attrition.

HRSA: THE U.S. HEALTH WORKFORCE– STATE PROFILES

The U.S. Health Workforce - State Profiles (State Profiles) complements the U.S. Health Workforce Chartbook (Chartbook) by providing state-level data for each of the 35 health occupations included in the Chartbook. The data in the State Profiles correspond to Chartbook information on number of graduates in each profession, total number of providers, and number per capita. The Chartbook and State Profiles were developed as part of the Health Resources and Services Administration’s effort to make data on the U.S. health workforce more readily available to diverse users.

HRSA: "Projecting the Supply and Demand for Primary Care Practitioners Through 2020"

This study examines the adequacy of the future supply of primary care practitioners (PCPs) to meet the future demand for primary care services. Data on supply and demand for primary care services in 2010, with demand adjusted for physician shortages in Health Professional Shortage Areas (HPSAs), are used as a baseline to project supply and demand in 2020 for physicians, nurse practitioners (NPs), and physician assistants (PAs). The model assumes continuation of key trends in service utilization, practitioner practice patterns, and practitioner production. The model also accounts for aging and population growth and the expansion of coverage under the Affordable Care Act. The impact of the Affordable Care Act is modeled under the assumption that all states expand Medicaid. Therefore, the numbers reported here overestimate demand for primary care services until such time as all states fully implement the Affordable Care Act. Projections of demand for each type of practitioner are based on how they are currently deployed to provide services.

The Center for Health Affairs': "Seeking a Remedy: Growing Need for Nurses Requires a Collaborative Approach"

Abstract: As the largest sector of the healthcare workforce, nurses represent a key component of an effective healthcare delivery system. Yet the ability of the healthcare system to perform at peak capacity is threatened by a looming shortage of nurses that is expected to intensify in the future. Addressing the issue encompasses not just increasing the number of nurses in the workforce, but also ensur¬ing sufficient faculty are available to train nursing students. Written by Kirstin Craciun, Public Policy Development Manager, and Michele Egan, Vice President Corporate Communications, The Center for Health Affairs.
