New Jersey Nursing Workforce Data
The New Jersey Collaborating Center for Nursing (NJCCN) is the primary source for data on New Jersey’s nursing workforce. NJCCN uses this data as a catalyst to implement innovative education and practice models that improve New Jersey’s healthcare resources. NJCCN’s supply data comes from our annual survey of New Jersey’s nursing education programs, as well as data from the Nurse License Renewal Survey from the Board of Nursing. Demand data is generated through the Labor Insight tool from Burning Glass Technologies, which reveals the quantity, location, and source of job postings for New Jersey nurses. We have combined these data sources into models for understanding the relationship between supply and demand. These models result in workforce projections, which can be used to answer questions that are vital for long-term planning purposes.
Nursing Data and Analysis includes three chapters that utilize data from 2017-2019. This report includes updates to the supply and demand data that has been reported in years past as well as an update to NJCCN’s projection of nurse retirement. These data may be used to inform healthcare providers and develop statewide solutions.
