 Participate in AHCA's Skilled Nursing Staffing Survey


AHCA is conducting our annual, nationwide staffing survey to examine retention and turnover rates for nursing center employees. The 2013 Staffing Survey is open to all nursing centers in the United States – both freestanding and hospital-based. All centers are asked to complete and return the survey by Thursday, May 1, 2014. Individual center and company responses to the survey will be kept confidential. Published results will appear in the aggregate form only.

Participation in this survey is of benefit to your organization. Reporting your 2013 staffing trends can help your company identify areas of improvement and assist you on your quality journey. AHCA member centers may also be recognized for their staff turnover results through the Association’s 2014 Quality Initiative Recognition Program.

In addition, AHCA members can access their survey results online through LTC Trend Tracker. Members can compare their staffing data to national and state averages, as well as local peers in aggregate.

Submit your data in 3 easy steps:

  1. Download the appropriate survey based on whether you are an individual center, or corporate staff completing the survey on behalf of multiple centers (multi-facility organization)
  2. Complete the survey and save it to your files
