Nursing is a key factor in the healthcare arena; nurses play a critical role in providing quality care to the patients they serve. As healthcare changes and evolves, it is imperative that nurse staffing numbers and resources are also examined and adjusted to meet the needs of the new healthcare landscape. With this, it is time to reimagine nurse staffing and the three things to consider regarding the nursing shortage.

  1. When it comes to patient outcomes, nurses need to be staffed at sufficient levels in order to ensure positive outcomes. With Nursa, nurses have the power of staffing in their own hands.
  2. Another factor to consider is how to explore a data science-backed approach to supply-and-demand staffing.
  3. The final thing to think about is how to use technological solutions to increase professional satisfaction.
