The Florida Center for Nursing is a state workforce center established in Florida statute (F.S. 464.0195) to recommend strategies to balance the supply and demand of Florida's nursing workforce. Our website informs, educates, and provides updates on nursing workforce issues. By collecting, analyzing, and reporting on the nursing workforce, the Center seeks to ensure an adequate supply of direct care providers for the health of the people of Florida.


The Florida Statutes require that the Florida Center for Nursing collect data and provide reports related to the nursing workforce.
