The pandemic’s lingering effects on the nursing workforce has significantly impacted recruitment and retention efforts. Burnout remains a top concern among nurses, and many are considering changing jobs. 

But we need to dig deeper to understand the factors influencing how nurses feel about their roles and their future in health care. In this rapidly changing environment, a new playbook is needed to provide a sustainable workforce strategy.  

Join us for this panel discussion as we assess innovative strategies from progressive health system leaders. The presenters will explore: 

  • Innovative approaches to expand workforce capacity and how to drive engagement. 
  • Sustaining a culture of excellence in challenging times and beyond. 
  • Building a next-generation clinical workforce that’s flexible. 
  • Drivers that impact job satisfaction and retention. 

Learning objectives 

  • Identify and implement strategic approaches to building a culture of workforce excellence. 
  • Explore innovative community partnerships that have helped build the nurse workforce pipeline. 
  • How to overcome common workforce challenges to sustain high performance levels in recruitment and retention. 
  • Take proactive steps to support nurses during their career continuum. 
  • Understand the value of providing increased access to nurse training and education and how this can impact staff retention and recruitment.
