The COVID-19 pandemic led to an unprecedented demand for nurses to provide hospital and other forms of care. The burden has been devastating for nurses, who comprise America’s largest health care workforce. As a result, nurses are leaving the workforce due to burnout, a lack of child care, contracting COVID-19 themselves or other health concerns, accelerating an already existing nursing shortage in the United States.
The National Institute for Health Care Management (NIHCM) Foundation and the Shorenstein Center’s Journalist’s Resource project present a webinar that explores strategies to strengthen the nation’s nursing workforce — and discusses the role of nurses as trusted messengers during the pandemic response. This webinar is the first of NIHCM‘s series “Health Care Workforce 2021,” which will explore challenges and solutions during the COVID-19 pandemic.
