Nepalese Nursing Workforce – At Home & Abroad
Nepal has more than tripled the number of nurses working in the country over the past decade. The country is on track to have 100,000 nurses on the job by 2030. Nepal has over 87,000 nurses working in the country. Of that group, just over 55,000 are nursing professionals and the remainder are nursing associates.
Over 100,000 Nepalese live in the United States. In that group, a large majority were born outside of the U.S.
States with large Nepalese communities include:
In the U.S., over 15% of the more than 3.7 million registered nurses in the United States are foreign-born, many of whom completed their training in countries other than the U.S.
There is a nationwide shortage of nurses in the U.S. due to a growing and aging population and many nurses retiring, but the demand for nurses differs from state to state. Within each state, more nurses may be needed in either cities or in rural areas.
