MBA, RN, CENP
New graduate nurse turnover has increased at a faster rate than the overall nurse turnover. New graduate nurses leaving the field can lead to poor quality outcomes, a reduction in staff satisfaction and is a further determinant and contributor to the nursing shortage.
One of the primary reasons cited by nurses that leave the field within their first year is due to a lack of collegial relationships. Additional surveys showcase bullying and incivility against new nurses, which is a problem that has been documented for over 30 years and is still active today. Seasoned nurses have an opportunity to improve new nurse turnover rates by providing them with support, comradery, and civility.
