2021 Vizient Clinical Workforce & Nurse Residency Program Conference - Provider Workforce Planning in a Large, Statewide Integrated Health System

September 9, 2021

The Clinical Workforce Conference convenes multiple health care leaders from various disciplines   across the country to discuss relevant challenges impacting the clinical workforce, share leading practices, and discuss the path forward for clinical teams as we stabilize, adapt and evolve into the future. The conference will feature content and learnings related to clinician engagement and wellbeing, clinician leadership, and clinician impact in response to Covid-19. This conference will assemble multidiscipline panels on the listed topics allowing them to describe how they address the topic to support their discipline. After hearing the discipline specific focus, the discussion will be facilitated to demonstrate to participants an interprofessional team allows for new and innovative ways to address long standing problems.  

The NRP activity includes several presentations by experienced nurse residency coordinators who will share their most successful approaches to engaging new nurse graduates.  New nurse graduates will have the benefit of growing professionally by presenting their evidence-based projects, networking with others from around the country, and continuing their life-long educational journey
