CNO Survey on Nurse Supply and Demand
Worsening Shortages and Growing Consequences
Healthcare organizations face growing challenges in finding the nurses they need, according to nurse leaders, most of whom say that these problems will get worse in the next five years.
This survey, Worsening Shortages and Growing Consequences: CNO Survey on Nurse Supply and Demand, measures the views of Chief Nursing Officers (CNOs) and other nurse leaders on the magnitude and impact of the shortages. More than 80% of CNOs say that the difficulty in recruiting nurses at their organization is moderate, significant, or severe - and 41% say it’s significant or severe.
Healthcare organizations may not be prepared to cope with the worsening supply and demand imbalance of nurses.
