Nursing Workforce Supply-Demand Analysis for IL Nurses
 

In conjunction with the Illinois Workforce Investment Board and the Illinois Center for Nursing, several state agencies (Board of Higher Education, Commerce and Economic Opportunity, Community College Board, State Board of Education, and Financial and Professional Regulation), convened project teams to develop a consensus approach for estimating the supply-demand balance in critical healthcare occupations in Illinois. To initiate the process, the Labor Market Information Support Team was asked to estimate the surplus/shortage of Registered Nurses in Illinois and develop plans for regional solutions in two pilot regions, the Northeast and Southern Economic Development Regions.  Utilizing industry and occupational employment projections, licensure information, educational completer data, and the results from an expanded Nursing Workforce Survey conducted by the Center for Nursing, the Team (chaired by IDES’ Economic Information and Analysis Division) is working with regional healthcare sector employers and associations to develop and refine a methodology to estimate the shortage of RNs and LPNs and identify possible leakages in the supply pipeline within each region.
 

The data below can be used as a starting point to determine the root causes of the identified supply leakages and explore possible solutions to impact future supply and demand balances.
