Nurses Week 2024: Build care teams, not assembly lines

About this Episode

Radio Advisory has commemorated Nurses Week every year since we started production in April 2020. A lot has changed since the early days of the pandemic, but the reality is that we’re still grappling with a workforce crisis defined by rising burnout, turnover, and shortages. Celebrating nurses just one week out of the year will not suffice in addressing these complex issues.

In this episode, host Rachel (Rae) Woods sits down with Advisory Board nursing experts Monica Westhead, Allyson Paiewonsky, and Ali Knight to discuss why the industry needs to pivot towards more sustainable strategies for their care teams, what leaders should be thinking about when training and supporting nurses, and why "top-of-license care" is an incomplete solution.
