Title: Rebuilding the Nursing Workforce Challenges and Opportunities
Presented by: Rose O. Sherman, EdD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN

Covid-19 has been massively disruptive to healthcare systems and the nursing workforce. Nationwide, leaders now struggle with unprecedented staffing shortages and high turnover. Generation Z and Millennials have different expectations from leaders. In this conversation, we will focus on the following topics:

  • The COVID experience's impact has changed how nurses view their work, with implications for recruitment and retention.
  • What Generation Z and Millennial nurses want and expect from their nurse leaders and work environments differs from prior generations.
  • The strategies and tools that organizations now use to enhance both their recruitment and retention efforts.
