Goal and Impact
There are major gaps in data on the health care workforce and the nursing workforce especially. More collaboration is needed among nursing organizations and others to be able to identify and answer the country’s health needs.

When the public and private sectors work together to synthesize the many sources of health workforce data, the country can set goals and priorities in education, training, and practice, and planning and policy will better match the nation’s needs.
Almost half of the Campaign’s Action Coalitions have made workforce data their main focus. Consistent with that, the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers reports that more than 70 percent of State Nursing Workforce Centers are partners with Action Coalitions in their states—a step toward creating a comprehensive collection of workforce data that integrates the diverse sources of statistics.
