Sense of Belonging and Registered Nurse Job Satisfaction
MetadataShow full item record
Increased registered nurse turnover may be a significant contributor to the nursing shortage; therefore factors must be acknowledged that lead to poor nurse retention. Tourangeau, Cummings, Cranley, Ferron, and Harvey (2010) identified that a relationship exists between job satisfaction, nurse retention, and nurse turnover. This is a replication of Tourangeau et al.’s (2010) study and will seek to identify additional factors that may influence registered nurse turnover and specifically search to find what work or life situations influenced nurses to remain or end employment. Miles and Huberman’s (1994) deductive qualitative data coding method will be used to categorize, refine, and identify emerging themes along with Krueger’s (1998) focus group analysis research methods.
The findings from this study may provide information to develop strategies that will improve registered nurse retention while increasing job satisfaction.
