Release of National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses Data
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has released data collected from the National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (NSSRN). This survey data is the principal source of information on the nursing workforce, the largest group of health care professionals.
The NSSRN informs educators, health workforce leaders, and policymakers of developments in the nursing workforce. This comprehensive data set assists in developing strategies that address present-day healthcare challenges and the evolving nursing workforce needs. Since 1977, the National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses (NSSRN) has been the cornerstone of nursing workforce data.
