Make Your Place a 10

happyfaceOne of the best nurse retention tools is to empower your staff to create an environment where others want to work. This is also a powerful nurse recruitment tool.

Think about it. If every staff member took on the responsibility to make just one change that would make a better work environment, what a positive productive place you’d have!

Form a committee to create a program for each staff member to offer one idea that answers this question: “What changes would you suggest that would make working here a 10?” Then, empower them with the freedom to list these suggestions, the possible obstacles, and solutions.

This will engage your entire team and help you recruit and retain you nurses.
