Analysis of COVID-19 Impacts on Nursing Staff - Report Released
The Iowa Center for Nursing Workforce, a program under the Iowa Board of Nursing, is pleased to announce the release of the Analysis of COVID-19 Impacts on Nursing Staff (August 2021), an executive summary prepared with the assistance of the Labor Market Information Division of Iowa Workforce Development. Shortly after the launch of the Iowa Nursing Demand Survey Report, the COVID-19 pandemic was declared. By July 2020, additional survey questions were added to the Demand Survey document and an additional 207 surveys were collected that contained answers to the added COVID-19 related questions. Data was collected from Iowa hospitals, long-term care facilities, and ambulatory care facilities. The results of the added questions are analyzed and presented in the executive summary. Our thanks to Katie Lippold, Labor Market Research Economist, for her work in this publication.
