HRSA Holds 'Listening Session' on Nursing Workforce Issues

On August 20, 2021, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) conducted a listening session with nurses practicing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The session explored questions such as:

  • What are the opportunities for the nursing community to help address the challenges facing healthcare organizations responding to the COVID-19 pandemic?
  • What mechanisms are in place to support nurses in your organization to promote resiliency, retain nurses during surges, and avoid burnout? What more do you need?
  • What could be done to support new nurses entering the workforce during the pandemic?

A recording of the listening session (with accompanying slides) is now available.
