Nursing Workforce Data 101

WCN uses data to provide an accurate picture of Washington’s nursing workforce to inform health workforce policy in the state. In nursing, there are three primary categories of data: supply, demand, and education. This short video explains what each category tells us about the nursing workforce and how the data is collected and used.

As a Nurse, You Have the Power to Influence Health Equity

The Washington Center for Nursing (WCN) and the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) are committed to engaging the powerful influence of nurses in advancing health equity.

“Health equity means increasing opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible, no matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make.” -RWJF

Together, we are teaming up to talk about ways nursing leaders are working to advance health equity in Washington State. And letting you know as nurse leaders and practitioners how you can plugin, too.
