2017 Registered Nurse Workforce Model Report




A summary of the components of this model and a comparison to the 2012-13 RN Model is presented in Table 1. A fulsome discussion of how these conclusions were reached is outlined in further detail throughout this report. [...] Provincial Workforce Statistics from the ARNNL provided in Table 2 and Figure 1 show that the number of practicing RN licenses in the province in 2015-16 was 6,372. [...] The RN workforce in NL had a higher percentage of its RN workforce educated at the baccalaureate level than Canada, and lower percentages at the diploma, masters, and doctorate levels: Table 6. RNs in NL and Canada: Level of Education. [...] To incorporate this into the model, the slope of the line indicates an incremental change of 14 more RNs than in the previous year. [...] For example, workforce utilization (scope of practice, team mix, workflow, etc.), the availability of provincial or federal funding for specific initiatives, competing priorities for new positions, and new roles for RNs, are all examples of factors that change the system’s requirements for RNs and the overall size of the workforce.
