Strategies to retain older nurses
Joanne Pokaski, BIDMC's Director of Workforce Development, spoke this week on a panel at a meeting of the Massachusetts Network of Healthcare Workforce Planning Professionals.
Pokaski presented the results of BIDMC's planning effort focused on the engagement and retention of older nurses in perioperative services. The two other panelists were from UMass Memorial Medical Center and Bay State Medical Center and discussed their planning efforts, also around older nurse retention.
BIDMC was one of seven awardees of a Massachusetts Older Worker Retention Strategies grant.
