conference contribution
posted on 06.12.2017, 00:00 by C Parkinson
This paper looks at the apparent shortage of nurses in the workforce, discusses why nursing appears to be a career declining in popularity, and puts forward suggestions to help enhance the attractiveness of nursing as a career and assist organisations in increasing retention of trained nursing staff. It identifies what nurses perceive as the main causes of attrition. Issues facing nurses in rural and remote areas are also identified and discussed. Effective solutions to the problems noted will depend on nurses, unions and management working together collaboratively.
