Addressing the Healthcare Staffing Crisis
The American Hospital Association has labeled the current hospital workforce shortage as a “national emergency.” With projections indicating a shortage of up to 1.1 million nurses by year-end, the healthcare sector is grappling with not just operational challenges but also significant financial implications. For hospitals, a mere 1% reduction in turnover can result in annual savings of $262,300.
Nursa’s Visionary Approach
Founded in 2019, Nursa™ is a nationwide platform dedicated to ensuring that every patient in need has a nurse by their side. With the recent completion of its executive leadership team, the company has secured an impressive $80 million in its Series B funding round. This funding, led by Drive Capital and supported by existing partners Pelion and Kickstart, will bolster Nursa’s efforts to address the rising financial and nursing deficits in the healthcare industry.
