How Johns Hopkins manages its contingent nursing workforce
Our guest for today’s episode oversees what she calls a one-stop shop for nurse staffing within Johns Hopkins. Built 30 years ago as an internal float pool, Johns Hopkins Intrastaff is now both a VMS and a fully licensed staffing agency that manages thousands of nursing contracts for the health system.
Its executive director, Laura Fricker, speaks with Dan about all things contingent staffing, including how she thinks about pricing and finding a rate that makes sense in the current market, and the unique benefits that Johns Hopkins is able to offer to its nurses. Laura also shares why she thinks nursing is becoming more respected as the technical profession that it is and why it will be valued differently in the future.
