NEW REPORT PUBLISHED ON CONNECTICUT NURSING EDUCATION SUPPLY
Since 2013, the Connecticut Center for Nursing Workforce, Inc. has been the catalyst in helping the nursing profession in Connecticut to better understand the composition of the nursing workforce who care for our residents. On a bi-annual basis, The Connecticut Center of Nursing Workforce, Inc. (CCNW) received "sample" nursing workforce supply data from the National FORUM of State Nursing Workforce Centers (National FORUM) and conducted an analysis of this statistically significant supply data; and subsequently published infographics on nurse demographics that was distributed and presented to healthcare stakeholders throughout Connecticut.
Beginning in 2018, CCNW partnered with the Connecticut Department of Public Health and the Connecticut Data Collaborative and was able to access a complete dataset of all Connecticut Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurse (LPNs). This dataset is a much more robust and valuable pool of data as it provides actual responses from those RNs and LPNs who are licensed within Connecticut.
