About

The Nebraska Center for Nursing was created by the Nebraska legislature in 2000 to address the nursing shortage in the state. Since 2000, the Nebraska Center for Nursing has been analyzing nursing workforce data collected from the renewal surveys completed by Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) when renewing their respective nursing licenses. These surveys are analyzed considering only those nurses who work in the State of Nebraska to provide clear demographic estimates of the nursing workforce providing health care to the citizens of the State.
