In 2013, the Utah legislature expanded Utah Medical Education Council (UMEC) health care workforce research responsibilities to include nursing. In association with its enlarged legislative mandate, the UMEC has accepted the designation as the Nursing Workforce Information Center, has become an active member of the Utah Action Coalition for Health (UACH), has developed an online RN workforce survey and has conducted in-depth surveys to support national efforts by the NCSBN and the National Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers to gather minimum data sets in supply, demand and education for nursing in the U.S.
