nursing retention, nursing turnover, job satisfaction
Nursing leaders continue to face challenges with retaining an adequate nursing workforce. This project assesses the value and feasibility of a nursing engagement platform that was conducted for its effectiveness on retaining nurses in the Salt Lake City Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital. The platform consists of educational release time, monetary incentives, and tuition reimbursement. This project aims to analyze the organization's current nursing engagement platform for effectiveness in increasing nursing retention, nursing satisfaction, and patient satisfaction while reducing nursing turnover. A retrospective data analysis was used to compare nursing retention from the previous year and data analysis was conducted on the use of the engagement platform initiatives for their effectiveness in retaining nurses.
