Фͼ’s proprietary solution to the enormous shortages of healthcare workers in the US

Hospitals require a steady and predictable supply of practice-ready nurses to ensure quality patient care and relieve staffing issues and burnout.

However, the nursing workforce is facing critical issues:

- Universities lack the capacity to prepare enough new entry-level BSN or MSN nurses

- New graduate nurses require extensive hospital-powered orientation to bridge the gap in practice readiness

- Nurse retention and turnover challenges strain hospital resources

Solving healthcare’s most critical workforce challenges requires a comprehensive solution that addresses needs across the ecosystem.

Together, we can build a sustainable, long-term solution that will transform nursing workforce development.

A new graduate nurse adjusts an IV drip while a group of other new nurse graduates look on.
  • Attracting and retaining quality BSN-prepared RNs
  • Decreasing onboarding and orientation processes
  • Increasing embeddedness of new nurse graduates to promote retention
  • Providing high-quality educational opportunities
  • Becoming known as the school of choice for students and employers
  • Overcoming placement capacity limitations and growing enrollment
  • Minimizing the cost of acquiring their degree
  • Gaining streamlined entry into the field as an RN
  • Entering the workforcewith enhanced practice readiness

Why we need to transform education

Healthcare in the United States is facing a critical skills shortage. As a leading university, you’re uniquely positioned to be able to solve this issue. However, addressing the complexity of education delivery and expanding your reach is difficult on your own.

That’s why, together, we need to transform education.

Removing online learning distance barriers, but still providing local clinical and field placements for degrees such as those in healthcare, is what we do best. In fact, we’re a global leader in healthcare education – delivering value to universities, their students, and the healthcare industry on a significant scale.

We lead you on a data-informed research journey so that together we select the best online learning degrees that your university can offer. We then co-design these with your faculty to deliver the highest-quality, most engaging student experiences, from awareness to graduation. This includes any clinical and field placements for any student across the United States.

Our teams work as an extension of your faculty and administration, so working with us feels seamless, supportive, and exciting. Plus, our US team’s deep experience and relationships on the ground ensure the best outcomes for you and your students.
