High turnover and associated costs contribute to a growing problem within healthcare organizations, creating inefficiencies and straining already limited resources. With 33% of healthcare workers leaving their employers within three months, 900,000 nurses to retire by 2025, and 55% report COVID burnout, combatting turnover with effective retention and onboarding methods is a top priority for hospitals and healthcare systems.
Given these macro-level trends, there is a need for reliable resources, actionable insights, and strategic solutions that include models for supporting their nursing staff, improving nurse engagement and satisfaction, and speeding competent nurses to independent practice.
