Examining the Nurse Pipeline: Where We Are And Where We'Re Headed
from Health Affairs Blog
Nurses play a central role in our health care system. Key factors determining the future supply of nurses are the number who are being educated by U.S. nursing programs and the number entering the U.S. after graduating from foreign nursing programs. The number of first-time takers of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), a prerequisite to become licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN), provides a good metric for the number of new nurses.
