We need your help – please complete the voluntary survey after completing RN license renewal 2016
The Registered Nurse (RN) workforce in Illinois shares many characteristics of our national RN picture. We are an aging workforce – 40% of the respondents are 55-65+ years old and one-third of this group indicates intent to retire within the next five years. The vast majority of RN educators who responded to the 2014 Illinois RN Workforce Survey http://nursing.illinois.gov/ResearchData.asp are also concentrated in the older age group. Of particular concern are the small numbers of nurses in the younger age cohorts (25-35 years) who are entering PhD programs.
