Abstract:
In the wake of reforms to the Canadian health-care system undertaken in the 1990s, new nursing graduates are entering a turbulent labour market. Limited resources and high workload have had a fairly negative impact on nursing retention. Within this difficult environment, new nursing graduates are more likely to leave their job. The purpose of this study is to examine the factors affecting the intention of new nursing graduates in New Brunswick to remain in their job. For this purpose, a questionnaire was administered to four cohorts of new nursing graduates having entered the labour market since 2005 (n=288). The overall findings demonstrate that the intention to remain on the job can be predicted to a significant degree by several characteristics of the working environment such as support from managers and the provision of nursing care based on a nursing model. Against the backdrop of the health-care system restructuring currently underway in New Brunswick, the conclusions of this study strengthen our overall knowledge of this area and promote a working environment that reduces turnover among new nursing graduates. The characteristics in question also represent a major challenge, given the imminent human resource shortage expected within the nursing profession.
