Abstract:
Reason for Resignation
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:White, Beverly
P.I. Institution Name:Wesley Medical Center
The purpose of this project was to determine the most common reasons for resigning a nursing position at a large, mid-western tertiary care hospital. A sample of 117 files of employees who resigned was analyzed with StatPlus to determine the most common reason for resigning a position. The most common reasons for leaving included moving out of town, other job, and abandoning the job. In addition, the categorical variables of reason for leaving and the variables of position, department, month of resignation, and status of the employee were related in two-way pivot tables. Tables of observed and expected counts were used to analyze the difference among two categorical variables with the Pearson chi-square test statistic. A significant difference was noted among reason for leaving and the variables of department, position, and the month of termination. The results of the project were compared with current nursing administration retention and attrition literature. The data is relevant to the nurse administrator in establishing trends on the reasons nursing staff are laving the facility and in the development of a retention plan for the institution.
