The landscape has drastically changed when it comes to nurse staffing for hospitals, and the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a surge in the use of travel nurses. While contingent labor has been critical in helping organizations manage through the pandemic, helping them supplement core staffing to provide safe, quality care, it has not been without its challenges. With demand at an all-time high, the attrition of many full-time employees, and limited contingent resources, pay rates for travel nurses have increased significantly. To put it simply, demand is exceeding the supply of nurses, and relying solely on travel nursing is not an adequate strategy to address the rising levels of vacancies.
This shortage is contributing to the continued issue of nurse burnout and turnover, and it’s clear that hospitals need to turn to workforce technology solutions and advanced workforce strategies to help optimize their limited talent resources and combat the cycle of limited supply and rising cost of labor.
This article will examine the current nursing landscape, the consequences of relying too heavily on a single source of contingent labor, and how workforce analytics can unlock a more sustainable solution for hospitals.
