What is the Health Workforce?

The health care workforce refers to all of the people who deliver or assist in the delivery of health care 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 RNs working outside the health care sector, such as RNs working in schools or for insurance companies. Additionally, there are many jobs in the health care sector that are not health care workers, such as administrative assistants, IT professionals, and food service workers.
