Tuesday, June 22nd, 2021 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT

Healthcare providers struggle to hire and retain permanent nurses, especially when competing with travel agencies. However, health systems and hospitals can effectively compete with travel nurse agencies when they create financial incentives to join float pools, support nurses’ career goals, and leverage data and automation to hire the permanent nurses they need.

During this discussion, David Jones, Chief Human Resources Officer at Stanford Health Care; Dorinda Manner, Executive Director of Talent Acquisition at Yale New Haven Health; and Iman Abuzeid, MD, CEO at Incredible Health, will share strategies healthcare executives can implement to successfully compete for and retain permanent nurse talent.
Learning points:

  • Leveraging data and automation to hire enough permanent nurses
  • Launching internal 'travel agency' and float pools to get flexibility without agency fees
  • Supporting nurses' career goals to retain more permanent nurses
