WILMINGTON, NC—On the heels of the successful webinar Nursing in Crisis: Rebuilding the Talent Supply Chain from Within and Reversing the Nursing Shortage, CastleBranch is launching an educational outreach campaign addressing the nationwide shortage of nurses.
The first resource in the campaign is the informative, free white paper Actionable Methods for Educators and Employers to Address Nursing Workforce Challenges co-written by CastleBranch and the Organization for Associate Degree Nursing (OADN).
“The dialogue surrounding this topic is already happening in healthcare organizations, their committees are already formed to address this staffing challenge within their four walls,” Nicole Bradford, VP of research and development at CastleBranch, said, adding, “The next step is moving from identifying the problem to having a conversation with the intent to take action. We’re trying to share what we know to help them make data-driven, informed decisions beyond implementing stop-gap fixes.”
Bradford led the recent webinar Nursing in Crisis: Rebuilding the Talent Supply Chain from Within and Reversing the Nursing Crisis hosted by Becker’s Hospital Review. Attracting approximately 600 healthcare professionals, the webinar examined the sophisticated pipelines for nursing education and employment, and how a collaboration platform connecting programs, hospitals, and students for collecting and reviewing meaningful student data early and often throughout their journey to and through professional life (TTPL) can help increase hiring and retainment.
The white paper analyzes the complex problem of bottlenecks in the pipeline of registered nurses reaching the workforce within each individual’s TTPL. The nine-page, evidence-based report is full of important data and learnings, in addition to practical solutions involving pathways to nursing education, workforce challenges, and how educators and employers can make a difference.
Actionable Methods for Educators and Employers to Address Nursing Workforce Challenges is the first in a series of educational resources providing nursing industry stakeholders with guidance to make improvements in processes and systems to fill gaps in healthcare staffing and ensure quality patient care.
