5 Strategies To Improve Nurse Retention
For many healthcare organizations, retaining nursing staff is a constant challenge. Organizations struggle to meet ever-increasing employee expectations, maintain a worker-centered culture, and ensure a flexible scheduling practice that mitigates stress.
Without the right processes and tools for support, an organization’s healthcare operations suffer; and so does the ability to provide a desirable work environment for nurses. This contributes to a vicious cycle. Dissatisfied nurses quit and the remaining staff must take up more shifts, higher case loads, and more challenging cases in their absence. Then, those nurses get burned out prematurely, which hinders worker productivity, decreases quality of care, diminishes patient satisfaction, and, ultimately, leads to even higher employee turnover rates.
The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated this problem, as more than one-third of nurses say they’re likely to leave their jobs in the next few years. Healthcare organizations who fail to adapt processes and leverage intelligent tools to bolster their workforce will struggle to maintain their viability.
To remain ahead of the curve, attract the right staff, and reduce turnover, healthcare companies need the right processes and tools to meet (or exceed) employee expectations, improve nurse scheduling, and empower their workers to succeed.
