The NurseGrid team is heading to the Emergency Nurses Association Annual Conference in Los Angeles. In honor of this event, I sat down with our Founder and CEO Joe Novello, a former ED nurse himself, to relive some of his best–and worst–times in the ED.
A lot of you have expressed interest in NurseGrid offering you more flexible ways to schedule personal events that impact your professional life. This week we’ve released an update to NurseGrid Mobile that offers you more flexibility and choice in event types.
Congratulations, you’re engaged! You feel connected, supported, appreciated, and heard—happy to put your energy into a relationship that promises positive returns. Shouldn’t that be how nurses feel at work? So often, though, they say they feel the opposite.
Despite its noble intentions, the Triple Aim of healthcare may be causing more pain than intended, at least according to a study in the Annals of Family Medicine. And it’s no surprise that nurses and nurse managers are feeling the sting too.
As healthcare continues to evolve, nowhere is the push and pull situation–the need to improve care quality and patient satisfaction on one hand and reduce costs on the other–more acute than in nursing. And nurse managers find themselves right in the middle.
Today we’re excited to announce two powerful new features for NurseGrid Manager. We’re now surfacing more actionable team and department updates and streamlining schedule distribution and communication–and we think everybody will be pretty happy about it.
