NUR 447 Chamberlain College Nursing Turnover in a Healthcare Facility Discussion
I’m working on a nursing discussion question and need a sample draft to help me learn.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (as cited in American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2019), over 200,000 new RNs will be needed each year through 2026 to replace nurses who retire and to fill new positions. National Council of State Boards of Nursing and The Forum of State Nursing Workforce Centers (as cited in American Association of Colleges of Nursing, 2019) reported that about 51% of today’s RNs are 50 years old or older. These are dramatic numbers and represent a challenge for future nurse leaders and managers.
If you were a nurse leader or manager, how would you retain the nurses you have? How would you recruit additional nurses? In your opinion, what do you think the future of the nursing workforce will look like in 50 years?
Your discussion post should look like:
- Paragraph one: How would you retain the nurses you have?
- Paragraph two: How would you recruit additional nurses?
- Paragraph three: What do you think the future of the nursing workforce will look like in 50 years?
