The U.S. is already facing significant healthcare worker shortages, and the number of healthcare workers needs to increase dramatically to meet demand in the coming years. Some studies predict a shortage of more than 400,000 home health aides and 29,400 nurse practitioners by 2025. There will also be shortages in other healthcare professions. This situation, though not new, is becoming increasingly dire, and there is no easy solution. There are many different responses and plans that seek to address healthcare worker shortages through workforce development and changing care models.
