Nurses play a crucial role in patient care and promoting overall well-being.
They are an essential pillar of the healthcare system.
However, the nursing profession is facing a significant challenge:
Widening workforce gap.
Due to the aging population and increasing healthcare needs, the demand for nursing services is proliferating.
Though some healthcare organizations could rebuild their nursing workforces, there still needs to be more than 200,000 to 450,000 nurses in the United States.
To address this gap, it is crucial to redesign the nurses’ workload and find innovative ways to optimize resources and time.
The Reason Behind Nurses Leaving Their Jobs
According to a report of March 2023, around 2 million of 4.2 million i.e. 45% of nurses reported that they were likely to leave their job in the next six months.
The potential reasons behind them changing or leaving their jobs can be:
