How Travel Nurses are Filling the Staffing Gap

Working to keep up with its growing Atlanta market, Northside Hospital has acquired physician practices and other healthcare outpatient facilities within Georgia. The acquisitions resulted in more patients coming in from referrals — as well as an increased amount of individual physician practices in need of additional staffing. In short there is a staffing gap.

To fill the staffing gap this year, Northside brought in about 50 travel nurses — nurses who are hired through staffing agencies to work in a specific location for a limited amount of time — as well as additional agency healthcare professionals at its three hospitals and outpatient locations. That’s a 55 percent increase in the overall agency staffing since this same time last year.
