VI. Conclusions


The development of the NSM and NDM was undertaken by HRSA to allow for forecasting of the nursing workforce shortage to the year 2020. Projections indicate there will be a national registered nurse shortage of more than 1 million by 2020. Numerous factors are driving this deepening shortage and no one policy will help relieve the shortage. A variety of innovative policies will be required to not only increase the supply of nurses but also restrain the growth in demand for nurses. Future projections are required to examine different policy scenarios and how these impact the supply and demand of Hawai’i’s nursing workforce.
