Presented on Thursday, March 24, 2022 | 1 Hour
The demands of the surging pandemic and the catastrophic healthcare worker shortage left in its wake have forced healthcare organizations to turn a clinical eye inward. The ability to shift, pivot, and adapt has never been more crucial.

In this webinar, Wolters Kluwer’s Health Learning, Research & Practice Chief Nurse Anne Dabrow Woods and UKG’s Chief Nurse Executive Nanne M. Finis will delve into a recent survey focused on better understanding nurse leader perspectives on care issues and the essential ability to change.
