Dennis R. Sherrod, EdD, RN
In this new ANA webinar, Developing a Culture of Retention for Nurses, you will gain knowledge and skills to create and sustain a positive culture of retention.
How do you deal with problems of retention and burnout among your nursing staff?
Recent studies predict that every time a business replaces a salaried employee, it costs 6 to 9 months’ salary on average.
In this new ANA webinar, Developing a Culture of Retention for Nurses, you will gain knowledge and skills to create and sustain a positive culture of retention. While addressing nurse retention issues across health care entities, you will understand why health organizations struggle to find and retain nurses, as well as the financial burdens of replacement expenses to loss of institutional knowledge that lead to poor patient health outcomes. As a leader, finding successful nurse retention strategies is a must. Participation in this webinar will give you the tools to succeed by giving you specific methods to accomplish your staffing goals to maintain a positive work environment and culture that will provide the best possible patient health outcomes.
