Recent trends in the nursing pipeline: US educated BSNs continue to increase
from Health Affairs Blog
To become licensed as a registered nurse (RN), graduates of nursing programs must pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). Foreign RNs wanting to practice in the U.S. must also take and pass the NCLEX. Thus, the annual data on the number of NCLEX exam takers and passers is a good metric of the nursing pipeline that will impact the future supply of nurses.
