Nursing, Employment, Healthcare in the United States
Nurse turnover is becoming a global concern in the hospital industry. And, this turnover must be taken as a health human resource issue where nursing attrition is becoming visible, creating nursing shortages in the health workplaces (OBrien Pallas, 2006). Growing trend of attrition in the nurses calls for effective recruitment and retention strategies (Stone, Gershon 2006). In addition, turnover has become a significant challenge for human resource departments in the health industry globally. This attrition is not only a problem for hospitals but also for the managers, health policy makers, and managers relevant to the field of nursing. Besides increasing cost burden over the hospital management to renew the hiring process in order to fill the gap created by attrition of nurses.
