Leadership Insights: Managing the Nurse Staffing Crisis - An Overview of the Latest Research and Alternative Models of Care That Will Shape the Future of Nursing

Monday, March 20

10:00–11:30 a.m.

Healthcare organizations are suffering from a severe nurse staffing crisis. Stress, trauma, burnout and other mental health issues are rampant in the workforce. It is urgent to aggressively tackle this issue, and a big part of the solution is creating a culture that puts the well-being of nurses and other staff front and center.

In this session, Katie Boston-Leary, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, of the American Nurses Association, and Quint Studer, Healthcare Plus Solutions Group and author of The Calling, join forces to lay out an actionable plan to help organizations consistently replenish their workforce and create a delivery of care model that benefits both patients and nurses.

Boston-Leary—who recently participated in The Partners for Nurse Staffing, a think-tank collaboration between HFMA, AACN, ANA, AONL and IHI—will create a snapshot of where nurses are today in terms of well-being. She will also overview the six priority areas identified by the think tank as needing urgent action.

Studer will zero in on the importance of creating a human capital ecosystem that puts fully engaged caregivers at the center. He will provide a wealth of tools and tactics that replenish nurses’ emotional bank accounts and build strong relationships between leaders and staff.
