Nurse leaders today are facing a new challenge: “the experience-complexity gap.”
As retirement-age nurses exit the workforce while the influx of new nurses continues to grow, the net effect is a decline in the overall experience of the nursing workforce. At the same time, the patient population is becoming older and more complex, with more chronic comorbidities. Simply put, more novice nurses must deliver more complex care. If left unaddressed, the experience-complexity gap will widen, and could put clinical quality and safety at risk.
