Morehead Hosts Live Webcast on Creating a High-Performing RN Workforce

This free webcast will explore the impact of engaged nurses on healthcare outcomes

Morehead Associates, Inc. will host a free, hour-long webcast on the topic of which comes first — a high-performance healthcare environment or high-performing nurses.

“Hospitals are concerned about safety, staffing levels, readmissions, and an endless number of outcomes where nurses can make or break the organization’s success,” says Megan Medvedeff, PhD., Morehead’s Vice President of Client Solutions. “This webcast will look at the key drivers of employee engagement (which positively impacts a wide range of business outcomes) among U.S. nurses in general and specifically among nurses at high-performing organizations.”

Morehead’s national healthcare database includes data from hundreds of thousands of U.S. nurses, including RN’s at more than 70 healthcare organizations recognized by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as as Magnet facilities for nursing excellence.

“Research shows that engaged nurses and physicians are closely linked to positive business outcomes such as patient satisfaction, safety, quality healthcare, and financial growth,” adds Medvedeff.

The live webcast will explore the impact of a high-performance environment on nurse engagement, contribution, and retention, and will include a live question and answer period. Members of the public, healthcare professionals, and nursing leaders are invited to attend this free webcast on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 1:00 pm. Registration information can be found at
