Crack the Code for Effective Nurse Staffing

Tuesday, August 10

11:30 am to 12:30 pm EDT

Terry Johnson, MBA

Health systems lost 18.7% of their nursing staff during 2020 and endured the average cost of $40,000 per turnover of each bedside nurse (Nursing Solutions, 2021). This urgent situation for the healthcare industry is exacerbated by the expected retirement of 1 million Baby Boomer nurses over the next five years, heightened burnout, and rising safety concerns.

In this free webinar, Terry Johnson, with nearly 20 years of experience of Health System Human Resources leadership, and currently Senior Vice President Human Resources of the University of Louisville Health, will help you gain a better understanding of the current challenges facing nursing staffing and discuss ideas and solutions moving forward.

Here’s what you can expect to learn:

  1. Overview of the current employment measurements/statistics in the U. S. Nursing market
  2. Short-term (3-5 year) Nursing employment outlook
  3. Actions and activities to address the statistical outlook
  4. Discussion and ideas on current and prospective best practices
