Nurse Retention: Creating Commitment Through Professional Development


Nurse retention challenges are highly correlated to increased costs and decreased quality of care.  Much of the focus has been paid to retention of the “new” nurse, which has resulted in the development of evidence-based strategies.  Forward-thinking organizations are preparing by more strategically incorporating professional development across the career spectrum for their nurses.  Join F. Patrick Robinson, PhD, RN, FAAN and Holly Lorenz, RN, MSN as they explore these strategies and discuss organizational impact.
