Organizations solicit answers for national nursing survey: 3 things to know

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing and The National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers are surveying approximately 260,000 registered nurses and licensed practical/vocational nurses in July to learn more about the U.S. nursing workforce, according to AHA News Now.

"All nurses who receive the survey are strongly encouraged to respond as quickly and completely as possible to enable NCSBN and The National Forum to construct an accurate description of the current nursing workforce," the organizations said.

Here are three things to know about the survey.

1. The organizations said nurses who receive the survey will be able to respond via return mail or a survey website.

2. Once completed, the aggregated survey responses will comprise the national nursing workforce dataset, which will be analyzed by NCSBN and The National Forum researchers, according to a news release. Results will be published in the April 2016 edition of the Journal of Nursing Regulation.

3. The organizations said results of the 2015 survey will be especially valuable given the expanding demand for nursing services, including primary care for the millions of newly insured under the Affordable Care Act, the growing population of aging Americans, and the advance of technologies that provide virtual access to healthcare providers.
