Hawaii has the most overworked RN workforce, according to a report by Medicare Health Plann issued in June.

Other states with an overworked nursing workforce include --- in this order --- Utah, Wisconsin, Wyoming, District of Columbia, Washington, North Carolina, Oregon, Nevada and New Hampshire.

The report is based on an analysis of data from the U.S. Census Bureau compared to FBI crime data and data from the Kaiser Family Foundation that included the total number of healthcare professionals for each state.

This data was used to determine the number of physicians and nurses per every 1,000 people. States with higher person to nurse ratios, were considered states in which nurses were overworked.
