AMN Survey: Nurses to Have Bigger Impact on Hospital Revenue

'Never Events' to Enhance Nurses' Role as Rainmakers

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- New payment systems being implemented by Medicare will enhance the role of nurses as hospital revenue generators, according to a new survey.

In addition, patient satisfaction scores may be higher in hospitals fully staffed with nurses than in hospitals that are understaffed.
