The Florida Center for Nursing is a state workforce center established in Florida statute (F.S. 464.0195) to recommend solutions to address Florida's nursing shortage. Our website is here to inform, educate, and update you on nursing shortage issues and solutions. 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 all Floridians.

At FCN one of our goals is to ensure you have access to the most recent nursing data from across the state. By creating various charts and graphs to illustrate our findings, we hope to provide a clear picture on what is happening in the workforce currently. Please feel free to Contact Us with any questions.
