Advanced Degrees Cause Nursing Turnover

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, October 22nd, 2015

An interesting cause of nursing turnover: In order to add more nurses to our profession, more colleges are adding a Master’s Entry into nursing programs, which allows students with a bachelor’s degree in another field to enroll in the full-timnursing turnovere, five-semester masters program. Upon completion, students can then take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) and become registered nurses.

As I’ve talked with countless CNOs this past year I’m learning the other side of that double edged sword: As nurses continue their education, they are vacating their current positions, causing increased turnover.

We need more nurses! To learn the best methods for nurse recruitment and nurse retention, visit SelfCare for HealthCare. Contact me today to discuss brining this program to your caregivers.

    But this is a foregone conclusion in any profession, e.g., you don’t get an MBA and stay on the salesfloor.
