Number of nurses increases in North Dakota
BISMARCK -- The number of registered nurses per capita in North Dakota has increased since 2000 and is well above the national average, but the distribution remains uneven, a health official told legislators Tuesday.
Patricia Moulton of the Center for Rural Health at the University of North Dakota Medical School said there were 14.35 RNs per 1,000 in 2006, compared to 12.9 per 1,000 in 2000. The national average is 8.48 registered nurses per 1,000 people.
