Abstract

In Britain, Canada and the USA, a chronic shortage of registered nurses has existed since World War II. This situation is predicted to become worse. Reviews both the general and nursing literature in human resource planning, and recommends a system which can be built up step by step and individualized for each nursing department. The core planning activities are a planning database, demand forecasting, supply forecasting, variance analysis and forecasting, and recruitment policies.
