The extraordinary conditions caused by Covid-19 have created major inflationary pressures in labor markets, particularly for temporary nurses supplied by staffing agencies. This has led to some stories in the media accusing nurse staffing agencies of “price gouging,” especially in regard to travel nurses. Find out why the cost of nursing services has risen, how politicians have responded to stories accusing nurse staffing agencies of price gouging, and how ASA is responding during the ASA webinar “ASA Legislative Update: Higher Pay Rates Are Driving the Increased Cost of Nurse Staffing,” brought to you by the ASA health care section. It takes place Wednesday, Feb. 9, 3–3:45 p.m. Eastern time.
All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit americanstaffing.net.
