Nursing workforce centers across the country exist to address nursing workforce challenges in the areas of supply, demand and education, to ensure an adequate supply of qualified nurses to achieve population health in the United States. Iowa is a member/subscriber of the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers.
Mission Statement: The Iowa Center for Nursing Workforce exists to support a dynamic, well-prepared and diverse nurse workforce to meet the health and wellness needs of Iowans.
Iowa's nursing workforce center is staffed by an Iowa Board of Nursing (IBON) employee. Employment and education data is collected by the IBON through the licensure process for licensed practical nurses, registered nurses and advanced registered nurse practitioners. Statistical information is then reported in the annual trends report, and as needed and requested, by interested stakeholders.
