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.


Strategically and innovatively address the issues of nursing supply and demand to meet the needs of the people of Florida by:
  • Developing and implementing strategies, building evidence to support best practices, and providing recommendations for systemic changes;
  • Generating and disseminating credible information to the public, professional organizations, healthcare providers, educational institutions, and legislators;
  • Encouraging and coordinating the development of academic-practice partnerships; and
  • Identifying and promoting recognition, reward, and licensure renewal activities for nurses and future nurses.
