The State of the Region: Hampton Roads 2022
In 2021, nurses ranked again as the most trusted profession in the United States.

As more nurses report symptoms of burnout and some are quitting the profession entirely, we explore the coming shortage of nurses in Hampton Roads, Virginia and the United States and ask what factors limit the supply of nurses in the region.
