CareerBuilder recently conducted a survey about the nursing profession, in which they measured nurses’ sense of loyalty and satisfaction with their field, the training they find essential to success, and their opinion of the impacts that changes in health care have had on their effectiveness.
Responses from approximately 900 nurses across the country can help health care executives make better decisions about recruiting, retaining, and properly rewarding their nursing staff.
The full results of the study are currently available, and CareerBuilder will present a free webinar discussing how healthcare organizations can integrate those results into their ongoing strategies. In the meantime, below are five of the study’s most interesting results:
5) 58 percent of nurses believe that health care changes have made the workplace less efficient.
4) Half of nurses surveyed believe technology helps them do their jobs faster.
3) Two out of three nurses reported having a mentor on the job – mostly in hospitals and hospice settings. In facilities without a nurse mentoring program, 41 percent responded that management has not picked up on the idea and 43 percent say that potential mentors are too busy.
2) 67 percent of nurses reported that on the job training was as helpful as or more helpful than their formal training.
1) More than 80 percent of nurses would recommend a career in nursing to others. (Is your job satisfaction that high?)
For more in-depth applications of the study’s information, we recommend taking advantage of CareerBuilder’s webinar scheduled for June 5.
