A new study released by U-Albany’s Center for Workforce Health Studies (CWHS) takes a deep dive into the stressors registered nurses in hospitals are facing.

The study was conducted in collaboration with the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation, over 8 months over 50 hospital representatives and staff were interviewed.

Some of the key findings were burnout and workforce shortages continuing post-pandemic. “I don’t think we fully appreciated how challenging the work environment is for registered nurses in hospitals, things like patient acuity, and short staffing,” said Joan Moore, CWHS Director.
