The 'Why' & The 'How' to Recruit Diverse Teams



Why should diversity be on your front burner? Because who you recruit directly impacts patient care and outcomes; the quality of your organization’s decision-making; and public trust in you.

Step forward. Gain the means to change outcomes from health disparities and rebuild confidence in our healthcare system.


Unplugging the Nurse Pipeline



Find out which creative approaches – alongside the basics – are effectively helping open the pipeline to recruit more OR nurses.

But how do you decide what to start, expand, or throw out for success? And how do leaders within healthcare organizations generate interest in the profession among new generations?
