Abstract:
The critical and growing shortage of nurses is a global concern. The growth and sustainability of the nursing profession depends on the ability to recruit and retain the upcoming generation of professionals. Understanding career choice is a critical component of recruitment and retention strategies. Career choice is a dynamic processing of life-long experiences that impact not only the decision to enter nursing, but also professional socialization and retention. Career choice theory and research acknowledge several personal, social and organizational influences on occupational choice. However, many theories fail to capture the unique context of the individual and the complexity of career choice in the 21st century. The process by which individuals make sense of these influences and choose to enter nursing has not been explored in depth. Furthermore, there is a gap in our understanding of how the upcoming Millennial cohort chooses careers, a group theorized to have distinct socialization experiences and career expectations than preceding generations. This presentation will present the current knowledge of career choice for the Millennial generation of nurses and describe how future qualitative and narrative research may provide an enhanced understanding of the rich personal and cultural influences embedded in career choice.
