Abstract

Executive Summary▸ The severe economic recession from December 2007 to December 2010 substantially affected registered nurse (RN) employment.▸ The objective of this study was to determine if the association between RN workforce supply and its potential determinants differed during the period from 2008 to 2012.▸ Older, experienced RNs were more likely to work in 2010, compared to 2008, but less likely to work in 2012 compared to 2010.▸ RNs were less sensitive to financial factors in 2010 than in 2008, but were more sensitive in 2012 than in 2010.▸ These recession-driven changes in employment may have had impacts on the labor market for newly graduating RNs.
