Telenursing: Bend Staffing Costs and Reduce Nurse Attrition with Innovative Technology


The US is in the middle of its largest nurse staffing and burnout crisis in 20 years. According to the NSI 2023 National RN Staffing Report, the cost of nurse turnover has increased 13.5% for an average $52,350 per nurse. Moreover, hospitals can save or lose $380,600 annually for each percentage change in their nurse turnover.

Virtual nursing pilots have shown promising results in shifting bedside nurse burden to Telenursing, leading to increased retention and recruitment, reducing turnover rates as much as 70%* and improving patient satisfaction up to 20%.

Join our special guest panel of recognized nurse innovation leaders: Rebecca Love, Shawna Butler, and Sigi Marmorstein to learn how utilizing innovative technology can reduce nurse turnover and burnout, and curb the enormous costs related to staffing and attrition. 

We will explore:

  • Current drivers of the nurse staffing and burnout crisis
  • Human and system costs of the nurse staffing problem
  • Steps to take for successful Implementation of Telenursing at your hospital
  • What to look for in your technology solution

*Becker's reported in June 2023 that a Providence telenursing pilot at Covenant Medical Center in Texas reduced first-year RN turnover rates 73% and overall RN rates 55%
