Event Overview

No matter how successful organisations are at recruiting and retaining frontline talent, most will face a shortage of experienced nurses in the coming years. Over a third of the nursing workforce is over 50, and leaders will have to rely on novice nurses as the principal source of talent to replace retiring experienced nurses.

At the same time, care complexity is rising. An ageing patient population, increasing rates of chronic conditions and behavioural health needs, and shorter length of stay all lead to more challenging care delivery. These two countervailing forces create a widening “experience-complexity gap.”

Join us for our 2019 Nurse Executive Roundtable in Toronto to learn how to close the experience-complexity gap.

At this session, attendees will learn:

  • How to accelerate new nurses’ transition from clinically novice to competent
  • Executive strategies to redistribute nurse experience to where it’s needed most
  • Innovative staffing models that better leverage experienced nurses
