Abstract:
Once nursing students graduate, faculty often lose contact with them, and may have little understanding of the trajectories that their careers may take. To provide valid data on the employment trends of graduates of a baccalaureate nursing program, a database was developed. Graduates are surveyed on their exit from the program, and at two and five years following graduation. In the 5 years since the database was initiated, we have collected data on six graduating cohorts, and have data on five cohort of graduates after two years of employment, and three cohorts of graduates after five years of employment. We have determined some interesting trends in the employment of baccalaureate nursing graduates in Saskatchewan. For the past 5 years, over 90% of graduates have accepted first employment in the province of their education; however, by five years into employment, only 70% remained employed in this province. Many have remained at the bedside well into their nursing careers, although many indicate an interest in nursing education in the future. Many are considering graduate school. In this presentation, we will address some interesting trends in the employment patterns of new graduates in professional practice.
