Click here to register
A must-attend webinar for CFO's and CNO's
Finance and nursing executives face many uncertainties in today’s healthcare environment, but one factor still under their control is the cost of labor. Acuity-based staffing is a valuable tool for maximizing those returns because it ensures the right staff are in the right place at the right time – essential goals as healthcare leaders face a worsening nursing shortage and continuing demands to do more with less.
In this fast-paced, one-hour webinar, a leading researcher will share the latest data related to the financial impact of acuity-based staffing. A CFO and a CNO will explain how a partnership between the two is effective in implementing acuity-based staffing so that it yields significant financial benefits for your organization.

The NursesHealth Study, established in 1976 by Dr. Frank Speizer, and the NursesHealth Study II, established in 1989 by Dr. Walter Willett, were long-term epidemiological studies conducted on women's health. The study followed 121,700 female registered nurses since 1976 and 116,000 female nurses since 1989 to assess risk factors for cancer and cardiovascular disease. The studies are among the largest investigations into risk factors for major chronic diseases in women ever conducted. The studies include clinicians, epidemiologists, and statisticians at the Channing Laboratory. Participating organizations from the Massachusetts medical community include the Harvard Medical SchoolHarvard School of Public Health, and several Harvard-affiliated hospitals, including Brigham and Women's HospitalDana–Farber Cancer InstituteChildren's Hospital Boston, and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.[1]
The study is recruiting a new cohort of 100,000 licensed practical nurses (LPNs) and registered nurses (RNs) (or those studying to become one) aged 20–46, for a cohort called the NursesHealth Study 3 (NHS3).[2] NHS3 is completely online, using social media for recruitment.[3][4][5] Notably, unlike prior iterations of the survey, NHS3 is not restricted solely to female participants.[2]
