Webinar Summary

We know the ongoing nurse staffing crisis impacts your ability to provide optimal patient care, and it plays a major role in clinician burnout, unit morale and a healthy work environment. As we advocate for change, our goal is to hear directly how you are feeling, answer your questions and discuss what you are experiencing.

Join AACN President Beth Wathen and President-elect Amanda Bettencourt for an online town hall to discuss the challenges nurses are facing and the work we are doing with our community to support nursing and nurses altogether. This is the first of a series of listening sessions that we’re planning for our community.
