2013 Home Health and Hospice Care Nurse Staffing Study (HHCNSS)
In Summer 2013, the Texas Center for Nursing Workforce Studies at the Department of State Health Services asked all administrators and owners of licensed and certified home health and hospice agencies in Texas to complete a short survey. The purpose of this survey is to assess the size and effects of the nursing shortage in licensed and certified home health and hospice agencies in Texas. Data collected from this survey will help guide stakeholders and legislators in developing policy recommendations and establishing legislative priorities. TCNWS is the only organization that collects this important information.
The 2013 HHCNSS is now closed.
The survey (PDF, 191 KB) and its instructions and definitions (PDF, 164 KB) are still available for review.
Please be aware that all survey responses are strictly confidential. All findings will be reported in aggregate form only. Individual home health and hospice agencies will not be identified.
