  • Description
    "In Canada, nearly one-third of registered nurses (RNs) in the workforce are aged 50 years or older, and will soon reach the typical retirement age of 65 years. Research also indicates that an increasing proportion of RNs are retiring early, many by age 56. This paper examines the impact of RN retirement and death on the future RN supply."
