1:00 - 2:00 pm ET

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) are gathering feedback and we want to hear from you. How can we better support practicing nurses? How might we grow and strengthen the nursing workforce within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic? What are the lasting impacts of the pandemic on nurse staffing shortages?

As a valued stakeholder, you are invited to give HRSA senior leadership direct feedback on how we can better support the nursing workforce. 

Please also feel free to share this invitation within your organization, particularly with individuals with front-line experience as practicing nurses during the pandemic.

Before the session, we are asking for your responses to the following questions: 

  • What are the opportunities for the nursing community to help address the challenges facing health care organizations responding to COVID-19?

  • What mechanisms are in place to support nurses in your organization to promote resiliency, retain nurses during surges, and avoid burnout? What more do you need? 

  • What could be done to support new nurses entering the workforce during the pandemic?

Your responses will facilitate robust dialogue during the listening session discussion. You can provide your responses in the registration form or email us your  comments/responses.
