The National Council of State Boards of Nursing and The National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers are surveying a nationally representative sample of 260,000 registered nurses and licensed practical/vocational nurses this month to learn more about the U.S. nursing workforce. “All nurses who receive the survey are strongly encouraged to respond as quickly and completely as possible to enable NCSBN and The National Forum to construct an accurate description of the current nursing workforce,” the organizations said. Results from the survey will be published in the April 2016 edition of the Journal of Nursing Regulation. “Results of the 2015 survey will be especially valuable in light of expanding demand for nursing services, including primary care for the millions of newly insured under the Affordable Care Act, the growing population of aging Americans, and the advance of technologies that provide virtual access to health care providers,” the organizations said.
