Nursing News: Nurses Want Work Life Balance

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, April 18th, 2013

Nurses have always started training in hospitals. Even though the health care system is changing rapidly to out-of-hospital care, the skills and expertise developed there are still valuable in most settings.

60% of nurses work in hospitals, though 85% are employed there within 18 months of their first jobs. 26% have left their first jobs within three years or so, and over 50% within six years, but the majority have chosen another hospital job.

Typically they are looking for a better fit with their clinical interests, a healthier work environment, or work life balance.
