Supply and Demand Projections of the Nursing Workforce

HRSA Health Workforce


The report presents projections of supply of and demand for registered nurses (RNs) and licensed practical/vocational nurses (LPNs) in 2030, with 2014 serving as the base year.

Projections were developed using the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Health Workforce Simulation Model (HWSM).
