According to the latest registered nurse workforce data from the Canadian Institute for Health Information, the bulge of RNs approaching retirement age is swelling. The Canadian Nurses Association says in a news release it is concerned that the number of RNs age 60 and older matches the proportion of those younger than 30. And while the workforce continues to grow overall, 2011-2012 saw the smallest increase in a number of years.
