Where Have All the Nurses Gone? A Look at the National Nursing Shortage and Potential Solutions.

October 25, 2022


Below is the invite to our Denver Medical Study Group Nov. 2nd webinar with Laura Rosenthal, DNP, ACHP, FAANP, President of Colorado Nurses Association. Dr. Rosenthal will be sharing not only the issues that you have been dealing with during the past two plus years (and before), but also potential solutions to this crisis of workforce shortage. 

Please join us November 2nd at 11:30 am MT for a presentation with Laura D. Rosenthal, DNP, ACNP, FAANP; Assistant Dean of DNP Programs and Associate Professor of College of Nursing, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and President of Colorado Nurses Association. This presentation will cover the nursing shortage that is a long-standing problem that has received due attention during the pandemic. Now more than ever, nurses are in high demand to continue caring for patients in all settings of health care. How did we get here? We will review some of the contributing factors to this ongoing shortage.

The American Nurses Association along with the American Nurses Foundation have conducted many surveys on nursing mental health and work environments. The Colorado Nurses Association also reached out to members early in the pandemic and listened to their stories. We will hear some of these stories, consider findings from these surveys, and talk about how lack of nursing staff affects patient outcomes. It must be recognized that there is no one solution that will solve the nursing shortage or the issues associated with burnout and mental health in all health care disciplines. Many solutions are in place and innovative models are developing. Examples of how different entities can contribute to the solution will be specified.

His topic will be “Where Have All the Nurses Gone? A Look at the National Nursing Shortage and Potential Solutions."

Take Aways:

  1. There is no one single solution to solve the national nursing shortage.
  2. Multiple sectors (Hospital and Long-Term Care Associations, Schools of Nursing, Health Care Facility Leadership, Community Partners, and Legislators) must work together on viable solutions.
  3. Adequate nurse staffing improves patient outcomes.
  4. The mental health and wellbeing of our health care workforce, in general, is suffering and although resiliency training is nice, changing the landscape of health care is better.
