The State of the Healthcare Workforce 2022

Vivian Health surveyed more than 3,500 nurses and clinicians about their approach to their healthcare careers. Their answers reveal sources of discontentment in their current roles, a desire to return to permanent employment status, and the specific conditions required for this shift to occur.

Key findings:

  • 63% of clinicians are considering leaving healthcare in the next 5 years

  • On average, a travel nurse would accept a permanent role that pays $65/hr

  • Mental wellbeing, staff ratios, and respect ranked higher than "benefits" when clinicians selected what is important in a job

We know healthcare hiring is broken. The problem isn’t workers, and it’s not recruiters. It’s the system. Vivian represents an entirely new model built on transparency, speed, and matching. With us, recruiters spend less time digging through resumes and more time actually engaging with qualified candidates.

We want to make all kinds of healthcare jobs—permanent, per-diem, local contracts, and travel—accessible for all kinds of healthcare workers and the people who hire them. We’re rebuilding the way that America hires for healthcare—one job at a time.
