The data you need to make informed staffing decisions

Jennifer Stewart explains the Advisory Board's 360-Degree Nurse Staffing Benchmarks database.

Although more nurses can lead to better outcomes like reduced readmissions and lower mortality rates, limited resources mean that adding nurses usually means something else has to give.

The 360-Degree Nurse Staffing Benchmarks database includes data from 19 different types of units to help nurse leaders understand the staffing decisions their peers are making.

Designed to capture trade-offs across important staffing variables for the whole care team, the database looks at factors including:

  • What team members are surrounding each nurse?
  • What's their experience level?
  • What's their educational background?

Use the database to understand what your peers are doing and to see where your organization stacks up.
