Abstract

This study investigates the balance between the supply and demand for nurses and nurse assistive personnel in New York state. Data collected in 1992 and 1993 from three surveys of hospitals, nursing homes, and diagnostic and treatment facilities are combined, reported, and analyzed. Although there were regional differences, the mean non-New York City vacancy rate was 4% for registered nurses and 5% for licensed practical nurses. The 6-month mean turnover rate for registered nurses was 8%; however, licensed practical nurses, nurse technicians, and nurse attendants had mean turnover rates of 16% and over. Turnover rates were lowest in hospitals. Nurse anesthetists earned the highest salary, a mean of about $61,000 per year. Salaries for nurse anesthetists and other nurses varied substantially by region.
