This study was commissioned by the Federal/Provincial/Territorial Advisory Committee on Health Human Resources (ACHHR) to develop baseline data on the supply and education of Registered Nurses (RNs), Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs), and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and on employer practices pertaining to the deployment of all patient care providers. The study results are published in five separate volumes. Volume II of the study, "The Supply of Nursing Personnel in Canada" examines data on the supply of nursing personnel in the provinces and territories to provide basic information about employment status, deployment (place of employment, area of responsibility, type of position, hours worked), age, and type and place of education/training. The analysis is based on data collected by the respective regulatory bodies in their registration and renewal processes. Two separate years of secondary data are utilized in the analysis (1990 and 1997), presenting a detailed national and regional picture on the supply of nurses in Canada.
