As open roles increase, the nursing talent shortage continues
Driven by high turnover from pandemic burnout and a large number of nurses reaching retirement age, the nationwide shortage of nursing talent is further complicated by an aging population demanding care.
“It’s still a difficult and competitive market for talent in healthcare,” said Cathy Henesey, Vice President of Talent Acquisition at AdventHealth and President of the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals. “Based on data from the Department of Labor, we expect the nursing shortage to get worse in 2023 and 2024.”
Where is the nursing shortage most dire?
Generally, less populous areas are more dependent on travel nurses and may have the greatest potential risk of experiencing shortages in the future.
These numbers paint a difficult picture, reinforcing the need for sustainable solutions to ensure healthcare organizations have the staffing resources they need to deliver exceptional care.
How can healthcare recruiters expand their search for nursing talent?
Healthcare organizations don’t have an effective way to look for passive talent, and have a hard time finding accurate and up-to-date contact information for nurses and other healthcare candidates. There hasn’t been a good way to search state registries and get a comprehensive view of nursing talent—until now.
