STATISTICS Globally there are 29 nurses and midwives per 10000 population (WHO Statistics, 2013) In NZ as of 2010, there were approximately 45, 460 nurses (RN & EN’s combined) Population is predicted to increase to 5.26 million in 2035 Factors which includes aging population and increased demand of health care services are inevitable.
THE PICTURE OF NURSING WORKFORCE BY 2035 In NZ 50% of the nursing workforce will retire in 2035 there will be a shortage of 15,000 nurses by 2035. Increase in number of Internationally Qualified Nurses Decrease or decline in NZ nurse graduates
OTHER PREDICTIONS Potential of other countries attract more NZ nurses to relieve their own shortages NZ becoming less attractive to IQN’s Nursing could also become a less attractive career and fail to attract students Strategies would increase the retention of nurses ( improvements in working conditions) Some nurses may choose to leave the nursing workforce when the recession ends.
CHALLENGES OF CONTEMPORARY NURSING If the population grows to 5.26 million 12, RNs will need to grow from 42, 330 in 2010 to 54, 660 in 2035= 330 1700 ENs from 3,130 in 2010 to 4,830 in 2035= An additional 495 RNs and 82 ENs needs enter the workforce annually
HOW MANY ARE WE LOOKING AT? 5.26 million population 970,000 of under 15 years old ( 890,00 in 2010) 1.2 million of over the age of 65 (600,00 in 2010)
