Title:Lecturer
This is part of a bigger study which analyzes the relationship of leadership styles of nurse managers, organizational factors and staff retention of professional nurses in public health facilities in KwaZulu- Natal, which is one of the nine   provinces in South Africa. The researcher will be discussing the completed literature review. There are various retention models which are utilized in different institutions which range from shared governance models, magnet hospital models, group practice models and others. Shared governance models were introduced to improve nurse?s work environment, satisfaction and retention. The concept of magnet hospitals started in the United States of America by the American Academy of Nursing in order to recruit and retain nurses in the profession and is now managed by the American Nurses Credentialing Center. A Magnet hospital is one where nursing delivers excellent patient outcomes, where nurses have a high level of job satisfaction, low staff turnover and appropriate grievance procedure.  Magnet nurse leaders involve their staff in decision making processes. The Magnet hospital is one where nursing delivers excellent patient outcomes, where nurses have high level of job satisfaction, low staff turnover and appropriate grievance solution. The Magnet program has a good reputation for recruitment and retention of registered nurses. The key characteristics of magnet hospitals are administration, professional practice and professional development.  In South Africa, hospitals voluntarily apply for accreditation from the Council for Health Service Accreditation of Southern Africa (COHSASA). Staff shortages lead to nursing staff unable to provide quality nursing care. There are high levels of absenteeism which leads to inadequate time to teach other nurses because of workload and the newly qualified nurses are expected to work on their own from the first day of employment. This further contributes to declining standard of care.
