Catalyzing a Workplace Culture and Environment Where Nurses Can Thrive

For our healthcare system to work, it takes nurses. Nursing burnout, turnover, and vacancy rates have risen to new levels amid the pandemic and understanding what is important to nurses in the workplace is the first step toward addressing foundational issues that cause them to leave.

We are taking action toward addressing these issues, through convening health system leaders to share best practices and pilot new approaches in the workplace that improve the workplace culture and environment, and provide resources to further strengthen nurse leadership and clinical skill development, and support mental health and well-being. Tap into our resources to help find ways to create workplace cultures and environments where nurses can thrive.
