As the economy recovered from economic recession and the Affordable Care Act was implemented, reports emerged of nursing shortages across California and the United States. At the same time, many newly-graduated nurses have difficulty finding employment, and policy leaders are concerned that nurses are not prepared for emerging roles in care coordination, home health, and advanced practice. This presentation will critically examine data on the nursing workforce in California and the US, including trends in vacancies, employment settings, and wages, to assess the current status of the nursing workforce and what it portends for the future.

Joanne Spetz, Ph.D., is a Professor at the Institute for Health Policy Studies, Department of Family and Community Medicine, and School of Nursing at the University of California, San Francisco. She is the Associate Director for Research at the Healthforce Center at UCSF and the Director of the UCSF Health Workforce Research Center for Long-Term Care. Joanne is an Honorary Fellow of the Spetz PhotoAmerican Academy of Nursing. Joanne was a member of the Institute of Medicine Standing Committee on Credentialing Research in Nursing and a consultant to the Institute of Medicine Committee on the Future of Nursing. She frequently provides testimony and technical assistance to state and federal agencies and policymakers.
