Since its inception in 2003, NoVaHealthFORCE, a coalition of health care employers, educators, and community leaders, has sought to identify and address health care workforce challenges in Northern Virginia. The coalition of business, academic, and community leaders has commissioned empirical studies of current and future workforce demand in nursing, allied health, and other health care professions. It has applied these research findings to design and implement a multistep action plan to strengthen the pipeline of qualified health care workers.
Ten years ago, Northern Virginia’s health care workforce could not keep up with demand. Today, the problem is ensuring that all health care workers deliver quality care in a cost-effective manner, posing new challenges that demand careful monitoring and planning. The State of the Health Care Workforce in Northern Virginia is a report conducted by Jobs for the Future for NoVaHealthFORCE updating two of their earlier commissioned workforce studies.
