Nurse leaders say the job is a ‘no-win’ role

February 28, 2024

The top three workplace challenges facing nurse leaders are staff recruitment and retention, burnout and labor shortages, finds a new study from AMN Healthcare, a talent acquisition company.

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the well-being of clinicians has taken center stage as labor shortages, harassment from patients and a perceived lack of support from employers increased clinician burnout and turnover. The AMN study, which surveyed hospital 186 nurse leaders, such as chief nursing officers and nurse managers between August and October 2023, found that leaders are suffering alongside their frontline staff. Nurse leaders said they are tasked with weighing in on a growing range of topics from workforce management to setting the hospital’s strategic agenda.
