If you are a Registered Nurse, a nursing student, or want to know more about the nursing profession you need information on the value of nurses. Registered nurses represent 2% of the total labor force and 36% of all health professionals employed in the United States.
The U.S. Department of Labor maintains several periodic surveys that collect information on RNs (not to mention799 other occupations). The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey provides the most up-to-date information on employed RNs. This survey and its results for 2009 are described in this seminal Issue Brief from ANA.
