The New Definition of Flexibility - An Intersection of Nursing Leadership & Frontline Clinicians Insights

Wednesday, April 19th, 2023 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CT 

Dr Dani Bowie, host of The Handoff Podcast, presents a deep dive into the interviews and viewpoints of 12 innovative nursing leader executives on the new reality of the post-COVID nursing workforce. Surfacing trends from this industry-leading peer group, as well as, results from a front-line clinician survey on workforce flexibility, we reveal three actionable recommendations and pitfalls for nurse leaders.
Key topics include:
  • The analysis of 12 hours of expert interviews including the University of Wisconsin System CNO Dr. Rudy Jackson, Brie Sandow Idaho’s ANA President, and Dr. Aries Limbaga, CEO of Rancho Los Amigos Hospital, Gladys Campbell former CEO of NWONE and NIH clinical leader. **Potentially surprise guests!**
  • Outlining leading viewpoints on the future of nurse staffing with the primary focus on flexibility - examining best practices within safe staffing, what the future of nursing should look like, new staffing programs, technology, and external labor.
  • Flexibility being a broad term, we will present proprietary data surveying frontline clinicians to help leaders understand what the concept means to nurses - uncovering divergence to create alignment.
  • With double the number of nurses moving to contract roles in the last two years, how leaders can adapt with clinicians is driving this trending uptick in alternative work by building flexible internal programs to recruit and retain top nursing talent for years to come.
