Engagement with your State Nursing and/or Healthcare Workforce Centers or Nursing Education organization.
The National FORUM of State Nursing Workforce Centers, Inc. (The FORUM) is to collect accurate state-specific data pertaining to: Determining the capacity of Nursing Education Programs at the RN and LPN levels via their MDS for Education; Understanding the Supply of Nurses via the MDS for Supply Survey; and Identifying the Workforce Demand identified of healthcare facilities and organizations that employ nurses via the MDS for Demand.

Only CT and Vermont have entities in their states that are members of the FORUM. CT would be happy to work with MA, NH, and RI to establish a connection with an existing organization within your states undertaking data work to become a member of the Forum.
To foster collaborations to ensure a highly educated, diverse, and sustainable nursing workforce to support the healthcare needs of Connecticut residents.
