What is the Health Workforce?

The health workforce refers to all of the people who deliver or assist in the delivery of health services, or help operate health care facilities. This includes health care professionals working inside the health care sector, such as registered nurses (RNs) working in hospitals, as well as outside the health care sector, such as RNs working in schools or for insurance companies. In addition, other workers in health care, such as an administrative assistant working in a private physician’s office, are also considered part of the health workforce.
