Statewide Data - Nurse Supply Reports

The Center analyzes nurse licensure and workforce survey data to evaluate changes in the state's nurse supply and to identify characteristics of the workforce. Our research has shown that Florida struggles to achieve significant gains in the nurse supply because massive amounts of nurses leave the workforce each year. Additionally, Florida's geographic and demographic diversity mean that growth and adequacy of the nurse supply vary substantially across regions of the state. Earlier versions of reports can be obtained by Contacting the FCN.
