Should I stay or Should I go? Reviewing the Evidence on Nurses’ turnover
Edited by James Buchan
Nursing, as never before, needs good evidence about the value of its contribution. One key aspect of this is to develop a better understanding of nurses’ job satisfaction and turnover intentions.
Health workforce stability can contribute to better care delivery, and health organisations incur costs every time a nurse leaves their employment. Policy makers need a firm grasp of what makes nurses want to nurse, even in challenging circumstances, and what will retain and motivate them.
This edition highlights the range of evidence that emerges from papers on nurse turnover published in JAN, reports on what makes the profession tick, and gives policy pointers.
