Engage Nurses to Retain Nurses

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, November 30th, 2009

nursecolor3I had the privilege of presenting 2 sessions at the Press Ganey National Client conference in Washington D.C. last week. I was thrilled that attendees benefited so from my Each One Reach One Nurse session ,where I shared over 150 tips on recruiting and retaining nurses, and they brainstormed even more!

As an expert in nurse recruitment and retention, I’m constantly researching and learning more on these issues. This conference was superb, a plethora of information!

I was eager to learn more about employee partnering to increase dedication and retention. Dedicated staff stay longer, reducing turnover. Dedicated staff deliver better patient care.

Based on data from hospitals across the country, instead of cutting staff to curtail costs, now is the time to create lasting partnerships with employees. Emotionally engaged employees are more likely to stay.
