Comments: For many years, respondents found it more difficult
to recruit RNs than STs. The 2023 survey showed the
percentage climbing higher for STs for the first time, although
the difference was only a single percentage point (69% vs
68%). The gap also narrowed to two points in 2020 (50% for
RNs, 48% for STs). The largest gap came in 2015 (53% for
RNs, 29% for STs, a difference of 24 points).
