What are some predictions and trends in nursing we may see in 2023? Check out these different lists and note the most concerning is the inevitable nursing shortage.

The Nursing Shortage: Looking Ahead to 2023 from
Statistics show the nursing shortage is still a crisis, but 2023 could be a turning point. Front-line nurse don’t need numbers to know that the nursing shortage is wreaking havoc on their workplaces. Nevertheless, the data do make a convincing case that it’s past time to get serious about making changes. And in 2023, recruiting and retaining good nurses could be the most critical area of focus in determining a hospital’s success. Numbers tell a dire story. 

10 Major Nursing Industry Predictions For 2023 from
It’s no secret that the nursing industry has undergone some challenges in the past couple of years. (Understatement of the century, perhaps?)’s State of Nursing Survey from 2021 revealed some hard facts from nurses themselves, such as the fact that:

  • 87% of nurses surveyed were experiencing burnout
  • 58% of nurses felt unsafe at work in the past year
  • 84% believed they were underpaid
  • 83% reported that their mental health suffered
  • 77% felt unsupported, while 61% feel unappreciated at work

Clearly, some things need to change for the nursing industry to not only survive, but for nurses to thrive once again in a career that can—and should be—an important, fulfilling, and rewarding one that benefits both those who choose it and the patients they serve. The future of nursing doesn’t have to be all doom and gloom, so let’s take a closer look at some of the top 10 predictions for what the nursing industry might hold.
