How to Hire and Retain Permanent Nurses Post-Pandemic, according to the COO of a System Magnet® Designated and U.S. News and World Report Best Hospital

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 • 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM (ET)

Register for the executive roundtable featuring Barbara Wadsworth, DNP, RN, FAAN, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Nursing Officer, and Senior Vice President at Main Line Health—a U.S. News & World Report top hospital and two time System Magnet® designee.

Barbara Wadsworth and Incredible Health CEO Iman Abuzeid, MD, will share practical strategies to retain and hire permanent nurses post-pandemic.

U.S. hospitals will face a shortage of more than one million nurses by 2024. The pandemic has exacerbated this crisis, as burnt out nurses are working fewer shifts or leaving the profession all together. The national nurse turnover rate increased to nearly 20% in the last year.

In the workplace, nurses’ stress levels are strongly correlated to the number of assigned patients. Leaders can leverage nurse retention tactics and hiring strategies to hire enough staff and address some causes of nurse burnout.

In this executive round table we’ll discuss how to retain nurses by creating caring environments, fostering resilience, and tackling compensation, and how to hire more permanent nurses by accelerating hiring speed, leveraging data and automation, and adopting the right hiring tools.

C-suite executives from across the country will discuss how to:

  • Foster nurse resilience
  • Improve nurse managers’ emotional intelligence
  • Create compelling career opportunities
  • Accelerate nurse hiring speed and volume
  • Leverage data and automation to hire permanent nurses
