Creating a Realistic Retention Roadmap for Sustainable Success

Presenter: Shelonda Darling

CE Offered: NHA, AFC, CALD, RN

In today’s challenging workforce market, changes must be made to stabilize staffing and return to a higher quality of care and profitability. But how exactly do we move forward when we’re already short-staffed and have no time to determine which changes will be most beneficial or ultimately implement those changes to create that better place to work? In this valuable session, Magnet Culture Retention Expert Shelonda Darling, will provide an audit of the current effectiveness and attractiveness of your organization as an employer, and then support your creation of a realistic retention roadmap identifying which areas of the business can function as they are, which need a simple tune-up, and which must go into the shop for an extensive overhaul.

Nurse Learner Outcome:

Learner Objectives:

  1. Identify gaps between where our culture is today versus where it needs to be to effectively attract and retain talent.
  2. Prioritize potential retention initiatives to gain the greatest ROI with the smallest time commitment.
  3. Discuss a plan of action for retention initiatives that will make a difference.
