The Flexible Workforce Handbook: Curing the Nurse Staffing Crisis

This 102-page handbook is a comprehensive overview of how leading hospitals and health systems are implementing workforce models that address the root cause of the nurse staffing problem – lack of flexibility – to ultimately cure their nurse staffing crisis and get out of daily symptom management.
As chronic understaffing has impacted nursing departments across the nation, tireless efforts to hire more nurses than the year before, working long hours, or devising elaborate incentive programs to drive shift pick up, have all come up short… if not failed. This Handbook empowers nursing leadership with;
  • An overview of ten different flexible workforce models
  • A process to conduct an organizational assessment to choose and build the right staffing model for your environment
  • Defining the nuts and bolts of best practice staffing and scheduling policies, and how to choose the right workforce technology
  • A look into the future of nurse staffing with the power of AI and predictive modeling
