Behind the Schedule: the Overwhelming Ordeal of Nurse Scheduling

The complex process of creating and communicating schedules adds extra stress for nurse managers and schedulers. Often, it keeps them from doing the parts of their job that matter most. In fact, nurse managers are spending upwards of 50 percent of their time on scheduling duties.

The process of creating and adjusting staff schedules month after month requires the soliciting of schedule requests, building the schedule, distributing the schedule and managing any changes that need to be made. It’s a headache, to say the least.
