Become the Nurse Leader No One Wants to Leave

Nurse Retention in Turbulent Times


COVID-19 has been massively disruptive to healthcare systems and the nursing workforce. Nationwide, nurse leaders are struggling with unprecedented staffing shortages and high turnover. Replacement costs for a single nurse can exceed $50,000.

We know from Gallup research that frontline nurse leaders are the linchpins in staff retention yet they often lack information on best practices in leading staff. In this interactive workshop, we will discuss the latest evidence on nurse retention. Actionable strategies will be presented to help you become the leader no one wants to leave. View program flyer here.

A PDF workbook for participants with tactical tools for your leaders is included in this workshop.
