The national leader for nursing workforce information

Sharing. It’s what we do best.

Call for Abstracts

The 2017 National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers Conference will assess how the 2016 Presidential and Congressional elections are reshaping the delivery and financing of health care delivery and influencing the agenda of the nursing workforce in the US. At the conference, you will join leaders and stakeholders of state-based nursing workforce centers, along with the nation’s leading nurse workforce researchers and analysts, to discuss and learn about changes in health care and how the workforce centers and researchers can work collaboratively to strengthen the nursing workforce. In addition to assessing the new political landscape, sessions will focus on the expanding roles of registered nurses in primary care and behavioral health care, how nurses must produce value in value-based payment systems, what’s new in forecasting the future supply and demand for nurses, and much more. Whether you are from a newly created workforce center, an established center, or are interested in transforming the nursing workforce, this conference will enhance your knowledge, enrich your networking, and better prepare you to meet the challenges that lie ahead for nurses in practice, education, research, and policy.
