We entered the COVID-19 pandemic with a strained U.S. health care system where hospitals were already reporting a 9% nursing shortage. We called on the existing workforce to perform the herculean task of caring for communities in the height of a pandemic despite not having the necessary equipment, staffing and resources. The result is now burnout and high turnover at unprecedented rates coupled with strained patient quality results. This sets the stage for an extreme supply and demand imbalance. To rebuild, hospitals must explore the experiences of their staff and create thoughtful strategies to repair the workforce. This thought-provoking session will explore fresh research and help nurse leaders create effective retention strategies for the workforce.
