      Nurses must have a healthy work environment that is safe, empowering, and satisfying in order to lead the way in improving health and health care for all.

The cost of nursing home care in the U.S is prohibitive for many, and it can vary widely between regions and states, from around $5, per month up to a surreal $25, per much a nursing home charges depends on its geographic location, staffing levels, the complexity of care offered and the facility’s size and quality.

AACN's nursing shortage fact sheet shares current and projected shortage indicators, contributing factors impacting the nursing shortage and patient care, and efforts to address the shortage.
