What Are the Day-to-Day Duties of a Registered Nurse?

Registered nurses play a critical role in coordinating and providing patient care across healthcare settings in New York. On a daily basis, they balance a multifaceted set of vital responsibilities. These duties encompass administering treatments, monitoring patient health, consulting doctors, documenting care, educating patients, and operating complex medical equipment with advanced training.

The complex and fast-paced RN work environment requires strong communication abilities, unwavering focus, compassion, critical thinking, and physical resilience. RNs must juggle these pressing duties while simultaneously supporting smooth operations throughout their department. They regularly coordinate care tasks, advise families, update records, and much more.

Registered Nursing Shortages - Causes and Implications

At TAG MedStaffing, our dedicated focus on the medical staffing industry gives us a valuable understanding of hiring trends for medical assistants. We have seen substantial growth in demand for these vital healthcare professionals, especially in New York State. Drawing on our extensive experience analyzing healthcare labor needs, we have identified key drivers spurring this surge across New York.

Read on to learn more about key trends and insights shaping the medical assisting profession.

1. New York’s Hospitals Reach RN Crisis Point

New York’s aging population and surge in chronic health conditions have set off a statewide nursing talent emergency. Hospital administrators have been inundated with RN openings as retiring nurses exit faster than new RNs enter the workforce.

An exodus of burned-out nurses during the pandemic has made matters worse, and the shortage threatens to undermine patient care standards. With New York’s RN-to-patient ratios stretched to the limit, policy makers must expand education funding and fast-track training programs to staff hospital floors properly.

2. Nursing Shortage Handcuffs New York’s Healthcare System

A tidal wave of RN resignations in the wake of COVID-19 has sent New York’s hospitals reeling. Nursing burnout and early retirements have depleted the state’s most skilled clinical talent, leaving gaping holes in specialty units and ER teams.

Vacancy rates topping 25% demonstrate the severity of the RN deficit, as facilities cancel procedures and leave hospital beds unfilled without adequate staff. Urgent investments in nursing education, along with higher compensation and mental health resources to reduce attrition, are essential steps towards rebuilding New York’s overburdened RN corps.

3. Where Have All The Nurses Gone? Solving New York’s RN Crisis

Connecticut’s LPN workforce is rapidly approaching retirement age, with over 30% currently over 55. As these nurses begin to exit the workforce in the next 5-10 years, their unfilled positions will vastly outnumber new graduates. This impending wave of retirements ensures strong job prospects moving forward.

Additionally, Connecticut’s nursing schools are not graduating enough new LPNs to fill this gap. With many experienced LPNs retiring, there is growing demand for these vital roles in hospitals, nursing homes, physicians’ practices and other healthcare settings. Meeting this demand will be a major challenge, meaning employers will likely need to offer competitive wages, bonuses and other incentives to attract qualified candidates. Healthcare systems may also need to invest more in LPN training programs and building a pipeline of future nurses to avoid staff shortages.

The retirement cliff presents issues beyond staffing as well. With many seasoned LPNs leaving, their years of knowledge and specialty expertise will be lost. Proactive measures like shadowing, extensive onboarding and training will be key to smooth transitions. Healthcare employers will need to prioritize knowledge transfer to ensure quality standards are maintained during this generational shift. Capturing the insights of retiring nurses will help incoming LPNs provide excellent continuity of care.
