Report: 90% of nurses considering leaving the profession in the next year

Shawn Sefton, RN, has experienced first-hand the operational, staffing and scheduling challenges that plague the U.S. nurse workforce, having worked as a nurse and in various nurse leader roles for decades. She discussed how technology can help solve some of the problems unearthed in the survey, told what she's been hearing from the field when it comes to burnout and turnover – and described some key actions are that hospital and health IT leaders can take now to address some of those challenges and increase nurse satisfaction and retention. A. Hospital IQ surveyed more than 200 registered nurses working in U.S. hospitals to gain better insight into, and a deeper understanding of, the nursing shortage and the impact it's having on frontline nurses, hospitals, care delivery and patients. 45% of respondents said the estimated patient-to-nurse staffing ratios they're seeing and experiencing across shifts are currently 5:1, above the typical standard of 4:1. 36% of nurses said they've seen patients with acute health conditions walk out of the ER because of the wait times for an inpatient bed.
