Nurse Retention


Nurses spend much time taking care of the needs of their patients while their own needs are often neglected. Increases in patient acuity and understaffing have increased the amount of work in nursing units leaving little or no time to attend to nurses’ needs. Staff morale is not usually a high priority until a crisis occurs, such as nurses start to leave their job and/or the nursing profession altogether. Nursing shortages, staff retention, and turnover have become the prime concern of the health care industry.


The purpose of this evidence-based practice guideline is to provide strategies for first line nurse managers in various health care settings, to use in enhancing job satisfaction and decreasing turnover of staff nurses. The goal of this guideline is to summarize literature dealing with issues that first line nurse managers can address, beyond compensation issues that will assist in retaining experienced nurses. Written 2002; Revised 2010.
