ABSTRACT: An organizational strategy for achieving workforce needs can drive innovation in employee engagement, retention and recruitment.

The medical center's experience participating in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded, Institute for Health Care Improvement "Transforming Care at the Bedside (TCAB)" initiative will be described. TCAB tests of change that transformed care on medical-surgical inpatient units will be highlighted. Examples include a proactive nursing wellness program, implementation of a critical assessment team, and piloting an acuity adaptable unit. The presentation will conclude with recruitment tactics that have been successful, sustainable, and cost-effective.
