Abstract:
RN turnover within first year of employment is widespread and costly. One contributing factor is that the favorable attitudes RNs have when joining organizations often change within the first six months. This shift puts organizations at risk for early turnover. By reducing turnover, an organization can lower operating costs, while increasing RN expertise and levels of patient care. One way to minimize turnover risk is to implement an Onboarding process during the first six months of RNs employment that assesses the reasons RNs joined the organization. Understanding RNs reasons for joining the organization, helps them: Learn the factors that attract nurses Evaluate recruitment strategies and their alignment with workplace realities Understand early workplace expectations and experiences In this presentation, a magnet organization in a large suburban area will explain how they embarked on an innovative Onboarding program to orient new nurses to the magnet work environment and integrate them as productive team members. They will also explain how data is collected twice during the first six months to assess: RNs reasons for joining the organization Perceptions of workplace factors that influence commitment and engagement RNs perceptions of the organizations orientation and Onboarding strategies In addition, they will explain how they use these metrics to: Diagnose at risk for early turnover locations within the organization Improve their recruitment, orientation, and Onboarding strategies Identify best practices for successful integration into workplace.
