HARD TRUTHS AROUND TODAY'S NURSING WORKFORCE
FUTUREPROOF NURSING THROUGH MENTOR-ENABLED SKILL BUILDING
Nursing leaders face an ongoing staffing crisis that is relentlessly driving up labor costs. Without a fresh focus on new retention strategies, health systems will continue to pay more for runaway turnover.
Permanent increase in labor costs
New nurse turnover exceeds 50%
90% of all nurses considering leaving the profession in the next year
71% of tenured nurses (15+ years) are considered an immediate flight risk
Research proves that infusing bedside leadership skills into nurses improves retention, optimizes patient outcomes, and reduces burnout. Historically, health systems have struggled to deploy these skills at scale in a low-cost, efficient and effective way.
Of the top ten reasons nurses would stay, six are associated with leadership and culture
Only 7% of nurse managers are formally trained in retention-boosting skills
Formal mentorship programs boost retention by 20-25%
Current mentorship programs typically reach less than 5% of nurse population

The Blast Radius of the Healthcare Workforce Crisis is Much Bigger Than Nursing
Nursing leaders face an ongoing staffing crisis that is relentlessly driving up labor costs, while posing a grave threat to the long-term revenue and strategic goals of healthcare organizations. Without a fresh focus on new retention strategies, health systems will continue to pay more for never-ending turnover and erode the ability to deliver best in class patient care.
How do health systems face the dual challenge of limited budgets and a depleted workforce?
The Answer is a New Tool for Retention:
Mentor-Enabled Training for Resilience and Bedside Leadership
(Delivered at scale, across the nursing workforce, and at a price point that will surprise any nursing leader.)
Historically, health systems have been constrained in their ability to train non-clinical skills at scale across the nursing workforce. Expensive, classroom-based training is typically reserved for nurses on a leadership track, while lengthy online courses often languish with little to no uptake.
Lead for Care removes these barriers, offering bite-sized, video-based lessons delivered in 10-minutes or less. Critically, we pair this self-guided microlearning with a proprietary mentorship model that taps into the institutional expertise of tenured nurses to deliver immediate, on the job impact, paired with peer learning and insights. Best of all, Cohorts start at less than $10,000.
Anchored on Three Pillars, Custom-Built to Meet the Unique Needs of Nurses
Self-paced, nurse-reviewed, bite-size modules efficiently instill leadership concepts deep into the frontline.
Ten-minute modules, married with on-the-job application exercises enable deep learning while still at the bedside - no expensive, offsite, day long courses.
Proven Mentoring Program
Proprietary, plug and play mentorship model rapidly creates deep interpersonal connections between mentor and mentee, and enables bidirectional mentoring across different generations of nursing staff.

We get it. Nursing leaders nationwide are struggling with a staffing crisis. This has put a spotlight on long-standing skill gaps among both new nurses and nurse managers – particularly non-clinical skills like situational awareness, leadership, communication, and resiliency (to name a few). Research has proven these skills lead to a better nursing culture, better patient outcomes, and a nursing organization that becomes a recruiting and retention engine.
Historically, this has been a tough nut to crack. It’s impossible to deploy traditional classroom-based leadership training models for frontline staff in an efficient and effective way. And while mentoring has been shown to be beneficial, programs are often difficult to scale, unstructured, and are not accessible to all nurses. This means we deprive nurses of vital skills and the power of a mentor-enabled culture, all of which would lead to a thriving workforce.
The good news is our cost effective, turnkey solution is anchored on a proven curriculum that expands the non-clinical skill set of all nurses, married with an evidence-based mentorship model that was built specifically by and for nurses.
Lead for Care builds a better nursing culture, which leads to happier nurses, happier patients, and an organization ready to tackle the future, not react to it.
