2011 Ohio RN Workforce Survey
As part of the online renewal process, RNs were given the opportunity to participate in the 2011 RN Workforce Survey using a link provided at the end of their online renewal. Participation was voluntary, but highly encouraged so that a complete picture of Ohio’s current and future nursing workforce can be assembled.
The survey was conducted in partnership with the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN). NCSBN is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to provide an organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting the public health, safety and welfare, including the development of licensing examinations in nursing.
The purpose of this workforce survey is to gather much needed data about Ohio’s nursing work force. The information provided will be used in developing strategies for the overall improvement of nursing practice in Ohio.
