Little attention has been given to the change in the age structure of the RN workforce composed of more than 2 million nurses in 1998. The current workforce shortage led to a preliminary analysis that indicated that an aging workforce aggravated the current shortage. This study addressed the differences between nurses 36.5 and younger with those 56 and older. Work patterns, work site and differences in profiles were contrasted. The 587 subjects included in this study are from a larger random sample surveyed in the Ohio. Significant differences in the work pattern were that the older group spent more time in management and "other" activities while the younger group spent more time in patient care. Significant differences in the work site were that few of the older group worked in the hospital and ambulatory settings, with more of them working in teaching, long-term care and "other" areas. The younger group included significantly more members who were married and had more children. More younger nurses had an initial degree of ADN or BSN while more of the older ones had diplomas. The older group had significantly more graduate degrees.
