What keeps a healthcare economist up at night

Today’s episode is our last of season 4 and it’s with one of the leading voices in the conversation around the nursing workforce. Dr. Peter Buerhaus is a healthcare economist and a Professor in the College of Nursing at the University of Montana at Bozeman. 

Today we talk about his research on the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on the nursing profession and some of the historical precedents that can give us hints at the future. Peter also shares what keeps him up at night, specifically how the constant negative messaging around nursing could ultimately dissuade young people from pursuing it as a career path.
