2021 CNO Report Perspective [US]


Protect the Nurse, Protect the Practice

Effective Communication Is the Foundation for Keeping Nurses Safe

In the American Hospital Association 2021 Environmental Scan nurse leaders cite the top challenges during the pandemic as:

  • Communicating and implementing changing policies (55%)
  • Surge staffing, training, and reallocation (54%)
  • Emotional health and well-being of staff (50%)
  • Access to personal protective equipment and other supplies (47%)

As nurses embrace the mantra “Never Again” and consider whether to continue working in healthcare, the need for change is clear. We must heed the call from all corners to listen to, support, and protect nurses.

2021 CNO Perspective report outlines six solutions for creating a safer, more effective work environment for nurses, including:

1Keeping nurses protected and safe
2Empowering nurses with control over patient-family communication
3Reducing the stress of crisis care
4Enabling smooth movement from novice to expert and back
5Protecting nurses from workplace violence
6Measuring and solving for communication task load
