The Registered Nurse Forecasting (RN4CAST) study shows that improved patient-to-nurse staffing ratios, sound nursing work environments and a better educated nurse workforce are associated with improved nurse wellbeing and better patient outcomes, including higher patient satisfaction and lower patient mortality.

The RN4CAST research consortium brings together researchers from twelve European countries (Belgium, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and England), the US and three international cooperating partner countries from the European Union (Botswana, China, and South Africa).
