Virtual Think Tank Series
Executive Strategies for Nurse Hiring and Retention During COVID-19
Thursday, April 22, 2021 • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM (ET)
U.S. hospitals will face a shortage of more than one million nurses by 2024, which is the biggest employment crisis in the country. COVID19 has exacerbated the shortage, especially for experienced and specialized nurses. Nurses represent an average annual turnover of 17 percent for hospitals and the median time it takes to hire a permanent specialized nurse is 82 days. Understaffing also puts patients, staff and hospitals at risk, contributing to higher operating costs, increased burnout and a reduced quality of care.
Join this intimate discussion alongside senior leaders from Acute Care Hospitals across the U.S. to share and learn about practical solutions for ongoing challenges posed by the nursing shortage, COVID19 and the highly competitive nurse talent market. Iman Abuzeid, MD, CEO of Incredible Health, will guide participants to consider how to increase recruiter and nursing leader efficiency, and hire permanent experienced and leadership nurses faster, using the latest strategies and technology.
Using case study examples and real-time initiatives, Iman will engage with attendees on how to deploy innovative strategies to retain nurses, as well as ways to better support front-line workers dealing with the overwhelming stress and anxiety of the pandemic.
You will have the opportunity connect with colleagues to discuss how to best navigate the next chapter in pandemic recovery, seizing upon key questions including but not limited to:
- How has nurse hiring changed over the past 12 months?
- What strategies are your hospitals using to increase nurse hiring speed?
- What retention strategies would you like to pilot?
- What does great look like when it comes to supporting mental health? Could your facility do better?
