Celebrating Nurses and Nurse Leaders

Empowering the nursing workforce with time to change lives.

"Great nursing happens in the moments in between. The more we can support these sacred moments, then the better the outcomes for patients and for our nurses. We want people to think about how we can give time back to nurses, so they can be the nurse they always wanted to be."

-Karlene Kerfoot, symplr CNO

  • 32% of RNs are considering leaving direct patient care, according to McKinsey & Company
