North Dakota Statewide Nursing Study, Phase I. Manpower Demands and Resources.
Clark, Neil; Smith, David
Nursing personnel demands and resources in North Dakota were assessed as part of a statewide nursing study. The objective was to determine the number and types of nurses needed in 1984 and 1986, and to compare anticipated nursing personnel supply and demand. The projections for the state as a whole and for regions within the state were designed to promote statewide nursing resource planning. An Organizational Development Model focused on nursing needs from three sources: nurse employers, nurse educators, and subgroups of nurses. Attention was directed to selected nursing education levels, nursing roles, and practice settings. The education levels included licensed practical nurse and diploma nurse, and the following college degree levels: associate's, bachelor's, master's, and doctoral. The roles were: general staff, clinical specialist, instructor, consultant, anesthetist, supervisor, administrator, nurse practitioner, and research consultant. Practice settings included hospitals (three sizes), nursing homes (two sizes), community health agencies, home health care agencies, educational programs, and location by county. In 1983, the Nursing Manpower Survey, which is appended, was sent to 210 nursing supervisors/managers, 76 percent of whom returned the completed survey. (SW)
