Validating the Current Demand for Change: The Models of Care Insight Study Results
As the healthcare industry grapples with substantial personnel changes, 85% of nurses are considering a new employer within a year, with nearly half of healthcare workers planning to exit the field within 3 years. How can the industry adapt to these impending changes? Will hospitals need to start recruiting retired nurses to fill the gap?
In the latest episode of I Don’t Care, host Kevin Stevenson sits down with Dr. Katie Boston-Leary, director of nursing programs at the American Nurses Association (ANA), to explore the Models of Care Insight Study’s results. In their conversation, they expand on the implications of various roles and programs and the gap between leadership and the frontline.
The two also discuss:
- The need for improvement in the current care delivery models, particularly with respect to telemedicine
- The noticeable gap in acceptance of the LPN model in the acute care setting, largely driven by unfamiliarity and fear
- Mentorship and coaching programs interest leadership, but front-line workers remain skeptical.
Boston-Leary makes it clear that “the American Nurses Association … thinks about you, we care about you, we appreciate you, we love you, and please know we’re fighting for you.”
Dr. Katie Boston-Leary is a recognized authority in nursing, holding several key positions in the field and at the ANA. With her background in nursing programs, she provides an essential perspective on these imminent changes.
