Two Strategies to Improve Nurse Retention and Nurse Recruitment

Written by LeAnn Thieman, CSP, August 14th, 2015

One incentive that helps with nurse retention and nurse recruitment is childcare.  Some hospitals offer safe and affordable childcare onsite with drop-off times as early as 6:00 a.m. and pick up as late as 8:30 p.m. Childcare often costs $200 a week (or more). If a facility offers childcare for $75 a week this can be an important benefit for a new employee and existing employees.

Offer Daycare for NursesSome medical centers provide daycare services from ages twelve weeks until school age. This would be cost effective and convenient for the new or experienced nurses.

On the flip side, many Baby Boomers are now caring for their parents, some living in their homes. Providing eldercare low cost and conveniently could be a great incentive for these employees.
