Description


New and improved recruitment, retention, training and motivational strategies for nursing staff are essential in today’s market. According to recent studies and reports, vacancy rates for registered nurses are greater than 10% and more than 1 in 7 hospitals report a severe shortage of nurses. Costs are spiraling upward as employers aggressively compete for shrinking pools of workers, offering hiring bonuses, vacation packages, more flexible hours, and other splashy financial incentives. In addition, nursing school graduation rates have fallen 23%. These conditions leave nursing executives and recruiters faced with a challenging ‘war for talent’. This event brings together expert and experienced professionals from the nation’s leading hospitals, healthcare facilities and consulting groups. Hear these leading institutions describe how they are aggressively eliminating nursing turnover, increasing nurse satisfaction and proactively working to increase the future pipeline of nurses.
