2021 Nursing Leadership Series: Solving the Challenge - Creative Approaches to the Future Workforce

October 21, 2021
The most recent pandemic surge highlights the pressure to manage immediate workforce issues, however nurse leaders still need to be developing solutions to address future nursing workforce challenges. Recruitment into nursing and clinical care support roles has always been challenging but the fallout from the pandemic along with the increase in complexity of care has made the nursing profession less attractive.
