Bi-weekly evaluations
Burnout eliminated by at least 85% in all hospitals across NC
“The nation’s shortage of doctors will rise to between 46,000 and 90,000 by 2025”
“Younger nurses also reported significantly higher rates of burnout and this was particularly true among those experiencing higher levels of agitation at work”.
"In one sense, it could be considered a public health crisis, because if we don't have sufficient nurses to meet the needs of people in need of health care," the entire health care system could crumble. "I think that it's time that nurses are recognized as a scarce resource that needs to be invested in, supported and respected."
