Travel Nursing Supplements Your Organization’s Nursing Needs
The demand for qualified nursing personnel has increased dramatically over the past few years. Retiring “Baby Boomers,” increasing life-spans, and an aging population that requires more care are factors that have put tremendous pressure on the nation’s healthcare providers and their ability to service patients. Nursing education programs, however, are unable to keep up with the demand. In addition, many RNs are reaching retirement age. It’s no wonder that healthcare organizations are finding it increasingly difficult to find enough experienced, top-quality RNs to fill their full-time staffing needs.
Many organizations are turning to travel nurses as an effective means of supplementing their nurse staffing needs. In fact, according to a recent healthcare cost study by KPMG, a nationally recognized audit, tax, and advisory services firm, hospital survey respondents indicated that a nursing staff made up of 90% FTE and 10% temporary nurses was considered ideal. The study also found that the average “all-in” cost (including benefits, insurance, paid time off, orientation, training, etc.) of employing a full-time, direct-care hospital nurse was approximately $98,000 per year, a cost that is comparible to employing a travel nurse ²
