Drs. Linda Aiken and Peter Buerhaus offered a bold solution to the complex challenges of the Nursing Workforce during a fireside chat at the American Academy of Nursing.
Dr. Linda Aiken, Founding CHOPR Director and past President of the American Academy of Nursing, and Dr. Peter Buerhaus, CHOPR Senior Fellow and Professor and Director of Center for Multidisciplinary Health Workforce Studies at Montana State University, jointly called for the Academy to launch a “Moonshot” in an invited keynote at the Academy’s 2022 Health Policy Conference in Washington, DC, October 27, 2022. The Moonshot, they argued, should address a problem in healthcare delivery that adversely affects millions of Americans and large numbers of nurses and on which nurses are positioned to lead change. They asserted that if nurses do not speak with one voice to advocate evidence-based policies to end chronic hospital nurse understaffing and high staff turnover others will impose interventions not to nurses’ liking and that will not solve the problem. They pointed to Magnet® hospitals as an example of the Academy’s leadership success. Watch here.
