This study surveyed Chief Nursing Officers in all of South Carolina's general acute care hospitals in early 2015 to learn about the nursing labor market and how it might be changing. Focus areas include new graduate employment, recruitment difficulties, changing roles for RNs, goals for a BSN-prepared workforce, support for extended education among RNs, perceived barriers to increasing the BSN workforce, and future expectations for nursing employment levels.
