Abstract

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY▸ The factors of recruitment, onboarding, education, scheduling, resource allocation, and retention impact nurse staffing in a hospital setting.▸ Making a change to one factor could negatively affect another nurse staffing factor, leading to negative impacts on a healthy work environment, a decrease in nurse satisfaction, and increased premium costs if not balanced effectively.▸ One organization used a strategic process improvement initiative to analyze and address multiple factors affecting nurse staffing in order to improve nurse satisfaction and decrease premium costs.▸ Use of trended data supported transforming strategies into action to address nurse staffing to support a healthy work environment and reduce premium labor costs.▸ The Strategic Workforce Action Planning committee provided the structure to engage clinical nurses, nurse leaders, and key stakeholders in the process.
