Bringing critical issues to journalists' attention is part of ATI's efforts to help solve the nursing shortage.

ATI recognizes the need to create a strong, sustainable nursing pipeline to address the severe nursing shortage. Considering the gravity of this issue, ATI has begun taking proactive steps to support industry initiatives that can have an impact.

ATI is using a two-prong approach: working with public affairs experts and connecting within government relation circles. These techniques have so far resulted in high-profile exposure within major news publications, which means high exposure in getting the message out.

Most recently, these efforts led to Bloomberg News Editor Rachel Rosenthal interviewing ATI Educators Gene Leutzinger and Timothy Beitzel. (See photo below.) Leutzinger is an Integration Nurse Specialist, and Beitzel is a Regional Manager and Nurse Educator.

The two men provided Rosenthal with helpful background information on the overall nursing shortage along with why it is crucial to focus more on men in the recruitment efforts of nursing schools.
