Best Help for Nurses Comes from Nurse Leaders
"STAFFING, STAFFING, STAFFING!!! When oh when will someone figure out that there would be no nursing shortage, no unhappy patients, fewer lawsuits, nurses more willing and able to pursue higher degrees of eduction [sic] and a lot less depression if nurses weren't expected to work in an impossible environment," writes another.
Nurses obviously have concerns about their jobs and hospital environments, but it's not clear that they working to correct the problems. Neither is it evident that they know how to advocate well for themselves, or if they are aware of ways that they can advance their careers.
But a free webinar series from the nursing associations of the National Healthcare Career Network (NHCN) aims to help nurses with these issues. The monthly series, which begins October 30, is running with support from the American Hospital Association and several nursing associations.
Among the speakers are nurse leaders such as Ann T. Bures, RN, MA, CHCR, nurse recruiter at University of Maryland Medical Center and Dennis R. Sherrod, EdD, RN, Professor and Forsyth Medical Center Endowed Chair of Recruitment & Retention at Winston-Salem State University, Division of Nursing.
