Three creative ways to cut nurse labor costs

In previous posts on the Leaders’ Lounge we have featured advice from nursing finance and budgeting expert Pamela Hunt, MSN, RN, co-author of the book Nurse Leader’s Guide to Business Skill: Strategies for Optimizing Financial Performance.

Recently Pam provided her expert opinion on using supplemental labor effectively in an article by HealthLeaders Media. In the article, Hunt recommends using traveling or per diem nurses  to handle medical leaves, seasonal volume increases, or large training initiatives, rather than depending on agency nurses to cover daily demands. Hunt’s suggestion, and the article in its entirety, is pertinent for anyone seeking to reduce nurse staffing costs.
