A strong healthcare workforce is one of the essential components of a stable health services delivery system. It is important that policy makers, researchers and legislators have objective information describing the demographic, educational, employment and other characteristics of nurses, physicians, physician assistants, dentists and dental hygienists working in Pennsylvania. 
 
Since 2002, the Department of Health, with the assistance of the Department of State, has been surveying nurses, physicians, physician assistants, dentists and dental hygienists during the license renewal process. Pre-licensure nursing education programs submit annual reports to the Department of State with information about their program, faculty, student enrollment and graduation. The reports below present information on the healthcare workforce and nursing education programs in Pennsylvania.
