Washington State’s Nurse Workforce – 2019


This project described the 2019 Washington state supply of Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), Registered Nurses (RNs), and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNP)s using data collected from LPNs, RNs and ARNPs at state licensure and license renewal. These data, required for licensure, were collected by Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission and the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. The survey questions were drawn from the Nursing Minimum Data Set (employment status, job characteristics, demographics, education, and credentials). The resulting report summarizes these demographic, education and work characteristics of the state nurse supply.
