Closing the Workforce Gap by Transiting New Nurses to Home-Based Care
May 13 @ 8:30 am – 9:30 am
You’ve heard it before and have likely been practicing this mantra for years: ”only hire nurses for home care with acute care experience.” The nursing shortage, combined with exponential growth in demand for care at home, has called for new ways to hire and support nurses as they transition to community-based practice. Our expert panelists will delve into creative preceptor and nurse residency programs for recent nursing graduates. Each panelist brings a different view to the discussion – from an extensive healthcare system in Connecticut to a small hospice program in Massachusetts and a network of VNAs serving New Hampshire and Vermont.
