Key Facts on Nursing Assistants Employed in Nursing Homes

Dana Ritchie

PHI released a report last month entitled, “U.S. Nursing Assistants Employed in Nursing Homes: Key Facts (2019).”  According to the PHI website, the research brief “provides the latest annual snapshot of U.S. nursing assistants employed in nursing homes, including key demographics and a variety of wage and employment trends.  This year’s research found that 581,000 nursing assistants support older people and people with disabilities in nursing homes.”  The brief also includes that “nursing homes will need to fill nearly 680,000 nursing assistant job openings between 2016 and 2026.” More key takeaways on nursing assistants can be found in the brief here.
