Forecasts & Strategies - Forecasts

The Florida Center for Nursing uses forecasting models developed by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) with Florida-specific nurse and general population data to produce projections of the state's nurse supply, demand, and shortage through the year 2025. Baseline forecasts (those assuming no additional effort to resolve the shortage) show that Florida may face a shortage of Registered Nurses (RNs) by 2025 that is capable of crippling our healthcare system and reducing access to or quality of care for Floridians. Earlier versions of reports can be obtained by Contacting the FCN.
