GCNE: We Look to
the Future

Georgia can distinguish itself as a state to recruit and retain nurses, promote the nursing profession, contribute to nursing student success, and advance new opportunities for nursing through coordinated actions and investments in nursing workforce planning and development. Nursing workforce development can help shape the future of nursing in Georgia by leveraging resources to support education, recruitment and retention of diverse, qualified nurse professionals.

The healthcare environment is constantly evolving, and strategic workforce planning is critical in anticipating changes and responding effectively to building a diverse, qualified sustainable nursing workforce pipeline. Nursing workforce development planning is about understanding the existing workforce supply, determining future needs, assessing the gaps, then developing a workforce plan to ensure a diverse, qualified nursing workforce pipeline.
