A No-Cost Approach to Solving Staffing Shortages Before They Begin: Strategic Academic/Clinical Education Partnerships

Tuesday, May 24, 2016

Health care HR executives are currently facing an unprecedented level of competition for BSN-educated nurses. The nursing shortage has arrived in full force, with thousands of RNs at all educational levels reaching retirement age at the same time as aging Baby Boomers require more care, and the scope of nursing practice is expanding. The gap between supply and demand—particularly for experienced, baccalaureate-educated nurses—has reached a critical level, and stopgap measures such as relying on temporary and travel nurses or paying large salaries and signing bonuses for experienced hires are not sustainable. To make significant headway against the rising tide of RN vacancies, the industry needs to rethink the education and recruitment models for nurses. The solution involves establishing strategic academic/clinical education partnerships between educators, employers, and third party partnership facilitators that enable nursing schools to significantly increase their BSN program enrollments and to provide their health care partners with a ready-made, customized, ongoing pipeline of practice-ready nurses at no cost. This webinar will discuss such partnerships as to how they are established, how they work, and how they create nurses who are uniquely qualified to meet employers’ needs at an accelerated rate.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Understand how academic/clinical education partnerships can be used to solve staffing challenges by creating a customized pipeline of qualified BSN nurses with no cost to the health care organization
  • Explain how such partnerships reduce operating costs, increase educational relevancy and eliminate the gap between education and practice
  • Lay out a path for creating such partnerships within their own organizations and gaining a seat at the academic table to help shape today’s and tomorrow’s nurses.

Presenter/Moderator:
Dave Palmisano, vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Solutions, Orbis Education
Dave will be joined by large U.S. hospital systems who have used innovative partnerships to address the need for more practice-ready nurses.
