As part of the Robert Wood Johnson Colleagues in Caring initiative, a regional data collaborative was formed to project workforce trends, role competencies, and role shifts for staff and advanced practice nurses in a large Midwestern city. Members of the data collaborative were from both service and academic settings. A descriptive study using a purposive sample was used to collect data from Chief Nurse Executives (N=18) in acute care, long-term care, home care, and alternative care settings. Desired staff and advanced practice nurse competencies were measured as well as projections for increasing or decreasing FTEs for over 40 identified nursing roles. The survey also captured qualitative information about real or expected challenges for selected groups that included staff RNs, advanced practice nurses, nurse leaders, and nurses in teaching roles. Quantitative findings projected continued increases in FTEs for staff RNs, LPNs, and unlicensed personnel. Leading competencies required for both staff and advanced practice nurses were found to include collaboration with multi-disciplinary teams, communication skills, and customer service. Qualitative themes centered on the need for a sound business knowledge for leaders and the need for schools of nursing to produce graduates who can perform in “chaotic” times.
