Demand Data from the California Employer Report: Survey of Nurse Employers in California, Fall 2015
The fall 2015 survey results indicate continuing improvement in labor market conditions faced by California’s registered nurses (RNs). Approximately 40 percent of hospitals reported a perception of high demand for RNs, and the share of hospitals reporting such conditions more than doubled in each of the past two survey years. In addition, 87 percent of hospitals reported at least moderate demand for RNs, which is an increase of 20 percentage points compared to the prior survey year, and a 45 percentage point increase compared to fall 2013. Only one in twenty hospitals reported the perception that the supply of available RNs was greater than demand.
