The 2016 Wisconsin RN Survey Report and its accompanying documents were accomplished with the support of many individuals and partners.

Detailed analysis of the Wisconsin 2016 RN Workforce Survey was carried out by nurse researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, School of Nursing: Susan J. Zahner, DrPH, MPH, RN, FAAN; Barbara Pinekenstein, DNP, RN-BC, CPHIMS; and Jessica G. Rainbow, BA, BSN, RN, Project Assistant and PhD Student.  The statistician for the project was Jeffrey B. Henriques, PhD.  Much gratitude is expressed to these dedicated researchers for their valuable contribution of time and talent to the project.

We are also grateful to our partners at the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, without whose assistance, our work would not be possible. This important survey yields critical information on the status of the workforce in Wisconsin and serves as a foundation to address predicted future nursing shortages which will impact the healthcare in our state. We are also grateful to the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services for making the survey accessible to the thousands of nurses in our state.

On behalf of the Wisconsin Center for Nursing and the many partners involved with the design, implementation and analysis of the Wisconsin 2016 RN Workforce Survey, we wish to thank all who assisted with the survey, and the nurses of Wisconsin for completing the survey.  The cooperation and dedication of all involved will aid policy makers and others in assuring a sufficient, competent and diverse nursing workforce for the people of Wisconsin.
