Reports continue regarding registered nurses (RNs) who are unable
to find work and of new RN graduates leaving the state for
greener pastures. At the same time, some hospitals report
challenges in recruiting nurses in specialty fields, and many
leaders and analysts are concerned the nursing shortage might
re-emerge. What is happening now? Will health care providers be
able to hire all the RNs needed now and in the long term?

A major ACA deadline is now just months away. As Jan. 1, 2014
nears, federal and state governments are moving quickly to
release regulatory guidance. Not surprisingly, the rules
significantly impact a major facet of the employment relationship
— employee benefits. It’s critical to understand what the new
regulations mean to hospital employers and how to stay compliant.
