The Thursday, May 21, 2020 call with nurses (at minute 9:50) contains a presentation by Dr. Amanda Chaney, AANP Fellow from the Mayo Clinic in Florida, on how individuals from different departments, specialties, and hospitals came together for Mayo Clinic surge planning. The team developed strategies for staffing acute care wards by identifying the fitness level of nurses from other departments for a surge acute care situation, and developed onboarding curriculum and a three-day shadowing experience to train 80 nurses to provide acute care.
