This project’s purpose was to explore the factors that influence the decisions of Intensive Care Unit (ICU) nurse interns to stay or leave ICU staff registered nurse positions at a large urban teaching hospital. The framework that guided the research was that external and internal factors influence the retention of the nurse interns in the ICU. The sample consisted of 40 ICU nurse interns who had participated in the ICU internship over the past two years. The telephone interview consisted of 9 open-ended items. Qualitative analysis of the respondent’s comments using a modified ethnographic technique revealed factors that had the most influence on the nurse interns. The factors included shift rotation, working weekends, unit moral, and having experienced RN staff on their unit. Most of the nurse interns would start their career in the ICU again. Recommendations for strategies to retain nurse interns in the ICU will be discussed.
