Oregon’s nurses are in distress. The unrelenting nature of prolonged public health crisis, along with the challenges facing the nursing profession prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, has taken its toll on Oregon’s nursing workforce. Many are leaving their work and anecdotal evidence shows there are many contributing factors.
On Thursday, September 9th, the Oregon Center for Nursing convened nursing leaders and stakeholders from across the state to discuss ways to support and preserve Oregon’s nursing workforce. Over 70 individuals joined us to share their wisdom, expertise and ideas on ways to protect patients and license, support colleagues and build a future nursing workforce.
