Abstract

The New Mexico Center for Nursing Excellence commissioned BBER to conduct two studies on NMs nursing resources. This first study analyzed the current and projected nursing workforce. The study is in three parts: an examination of the mature RN workforce in 2001; trends associated with new entrants into the RN workforce since 1995; and an analysis of the economic and institutional factors that may constrain increasing the RN supply. The study concludes that NM is experiencing a more severe nursing shortage than most other U.S. states. Illustrated with tables and charts. Bibliography.'
