HDemand_Thumbnailave you had a chance to check out OCN’s latest report on nursing demand?

The report, released at the end of June, shows a growing demand for registered nurses in Oregon and a projected shortage of nurses in the near future.

OCN worked with local hospitals and health systems, skilled nursing facilities, home health and hospice agencies, and public health departments across Oregon to collect information on current and projected hiring needs for nurses.
