Nebraska Workforce Analysis

The AHEC-supported Status of Healthcare Workforce in the State of Nebraska report utilizes recent data to provide an updated analysis of Nebraska’s health professionals, and identify counties within Nebraska that are experiencing shortages of these professionals.

To ensure current data is available to inform workforce-related initiatives, program planning, and policy development, AHEC is committed to supporting regular and systematic reporting on the distribution of Nebraska’s healthcare workforce.
