The Blockchain Solution for the Global Nursing Industry

NurseToken has early adopters with 2,000+ nurses ready to onboard the platform and dozens of agency and hospital clients that will be accessing nurse credentials through the platform. One of these first clients is SnapNurse who already credentials hundreds of nurses per month.

What is NurseToken?

There’s a worldwide shortage of nurses that’s hit crisis levels. NurseToken tackles this problem head on with a de-centralized credential & payment system that increases nurse portability, enables hospitals to fill much needed positions on-demand, and offers more uniform and universalized payments to nurses worldwide.

  • Proven Track Record

    The NurseToken team has been building key relationships in the medical industry for over 18 years, including relationships with major hospitals and associations eager for NurseToken's release.

  • $1.4M in Pre-Commitments

    Before even completing a whitepaper, NurseToken inspired key crypto influencers, VCs, and major medical industry players, resulting in $1.4M in pre-commitments.

  • Crowdsourced Approach

    The nursing shortage is a global problem that needs a solution like NurseToken. Through a crowdsourced approach, we are quickly building a community and nurturing relationship within the global medical industry.

  • Incredible Potential

    Nurses are the single-largest workforce in the world. Yet the World Health Organization estimates a nursing shortage of over 9m people in 2018, with individual hospitals spending as much as $2m / month in recruiting, training and hiring nurses. NurseToken streamlines this recruiting / hiring process and incentivizes nurses, increasing the flow of new nurses into the workforce.

Our Mission

Our world needs more nurses. An epidemic would show us just how critical this need is. Nurses save lives. The shortage of nurses is killing patients. NurseToken tackles this crisis head on, creating a safer, more cared-for world. Join us, and let's end this crisis together.

The Crisis Explained

The Crisis: Part 1

There aren’t enough nurses. It’s killing patients, and costing hospitals billions worldwide.

“Nurse shortages linked to higher patient mortality.” - A study conducted by Flavia Munn, published in NursingStandard.

Hospitals are doing what they can, but the current solution is clunky, slow, and expensive. Essentially, they’re forced to pay expensive staffing agencies for contractor nurses.

But because these agencies take such a massive cut, hospitals end up paying more, and nurses get paid less.

“Hospitals nationwide... are paying billions of dollars collectively to recruit and retain nurses.” - Reuters, “Short on staff: Nursing crisis strains U.S. hospitals.”

Nursing is already an incredibly grueling job though. This decrease in pay is deterring capable people from becoming nurses. But our world desperately needs nurses. Patients are already dying from the shortage. It’s only a matter of time until an epidemic shows us how critical this issue is.

“I’ve been a nurse 40 years, and the shortage is the worst I’ve ever seen it.”

Ron Moore, Fmr VP & CNO of Charleston Area Medical Center

Reuters, “Short on staff: Nursing crisis
strains U.S. hospitals.”

The Crisis: Part 2

Nurses who are ready and willing are held
back by insane bureaucracy.

Because hospitals do not share information or nurse hiring practices, nurses must get new credentials for each hospital they wish to work at.

But because the process is so arduous, it can take up to 3 months for nurses to gain credentials at hospitals that desperately need their help.

If a nurse then wishes to help another hospital in need, he or she will have to go through the process all over again to work there. There’s a shortage of nurses. And bureaucracy is rubbing salt on this open wound.

NurseToken

Leveraging Blockchain to
Save the Nursing World.

Our 3 powerful blockchain applications solve the most pressing issues in the global nursing shortage. Here's how.

Blockchain application 1

De-Centralize Nurse-Hospital Credentialing - Allowing Any Nurse to Help Any Hospital, Instantly, At Any Time.

Portable, trusted, and instantly-verifiable credentials via blockchain. Here’s how:

  1. With NurseToken, nurses will go through a rigorous credentialing process that any hospital would approve of - with flying colors.
  2. These credentials would then be stored in their own blockchain wallet.
  3. To pick up shifts at a hospital in need - nurses would
    simply show their credentials, and just like that, they’re in.

No more 3-months-long process per hospital. Now, nurses get credentialed once, and can work anywhere, at any time.

Blockchain application 2

Hospitals Use Tokens to “Unlock” a
Nurse’s Blockchain-Guarded Credentials.

As part of the onboarding process for new nurses, hospitals will use NurseToken tokens to unlock and verify new nurses’ credentials.

This, in itself, is a powerful form of built-in distribution for NurseToken.

It also ensures safety, privacy, and fraud-proofing of nurse credentials.

Blockchain application 3

Incentivize nurses, making it a career path more bright people are eager to join.

With NurseToken - hospitals can now incentivize nurses who are the best fits for them. And it increases distribution of NurseToken as well.

For example...

  1. Let’s say Nurse A completes a shift at Hospital A and
    receives rave reviews from patients and other hospital staff.
  2. Hospital A wants to do whatever they can to get Nurse A
    to come back.
  3. NurseToken makes this easy. Hospital A simply sends
    Nurse A a ”bonus” in NurseToken, delivered straight to
    the same blockchain wallet she stores her credentials in.

The result? Nurses receive powerful incentives to pick up more shifts... and these incentives make nursing far more attractive to the current and next generations of our world.

The Medical Community is Ready & Eager for NurseToken’s Launch. In fact, we already have one confirmed early adopter, and are in talks with more.

Early Adopter 1: SnapNurse

SnapNurse is an automated nurse-hospital hiring platform gaining massive traction. Hundreds of nurses apply every week. Hospitals of all calibers, from small, local ones to renowned giants like USPI, are eagerly trying to get on the platform.

SnapNurse has been in talks with hospitals and nurses about NurseToken, and their clientele could not be more eager or willing to adopt NurseToken when it's ready.

One such partner is USPI, United Surgical Partners International, the largest ambulatory service provider in the United States.

In addition, SnapNurse is eager to use NurseToken to take its platform to the next level. NurseToken's de-centralized credentialing and incentivizing of nurses is the exact solution they've been waiting for.

"SnapNurse is half the solution to this global problem. NurseToken is the much-needed other half we've been waiting for." Jeff Richards, Chief Operating Officer, SnapNurse
 

What do nurses think of this concept? We surveyed them, and here’s what
we found...

Breakdown of responses:

de-centralized credentials

said they wanted universal credentials they could take from hospital to hospital.

cryptocurrency bonuses

said receiving incentives in the form of cryptocurrency (i.e. NurseToken) would increase hospital loyalty and their desire to take on more shifts.

“NurseToken is an amazing answer to a problem that has gone on for too long, and is growing too fast.”

Jeff Richards

Fmr. Director and Chief Anesthetist at Grady Memorial Hospital

The best part: This is just Phase 1 of NurseToken. The future holds so much more promise, in multiple industries, worldwide...

in the healthcare industry
  • Applications in the $364B global home healthcare market.
  • Applications in the $20B telemedicine industry.
  • Applications across thousands of nurse staffing agencies worldwide, similar to SnapNurse mentioned in the "Early Adopters" section above.
  • We see a world where nurses receive the compensation they deserve, for one of the hardest jobs in the medical profession.
  • We see a world where there are enough nurses to easily care for all patients.
beyond the healthcare industry
  • We see a world where credentialing is universal, de-centralized, and leveraging blockchain for new levels of speed, efficiency, and care.
  • We see a world where difficult careers are incentivized, so the world gets the positions filled that it desperately needs, and those who complete this difficult work get paid fairly.
