Nursing Workforce Data Top Priority

Twenty-seven nurse leaders and their professional colleagues from Centers for Nursing representing 22 states across the nation gathered in Dallas, TX from Feb. 10 -12 to network, discuss current and future workforce needs for registered nurses, and planned for the ongoing need for accurate, reliable nursing workforce data.  Executive Director, Deborah Elliott, MBA, RN, attended the 2-day meeting representing the interests of registered nurses in NYS.

"Although Centers vary in their structure and funding support across the US, all have one common goal which is to promote an optimal nursing workforce in order to meet the healthcare needs of current and future populations", Elliott stated. "Through collaboration, dissemination of critical data and informing decision makers, this is certainly possible", she added.  For more information about the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers and the New York Center for Nursing Workforce Data, click here
