Editor's Note

With millennials soon to make up 50% of the workforce, it is essential to recognize how the millennial nurses’ values and expectations shape their viewpoints to consider or reject leadership roles, this study finds.

Seven themes of experience emerged:

  • Coming into the role
  • Learning as I go
  • Having the support of my director
  • Making an impact
  • Helping staff succeed
  • Managing change
  • Trying to stay balanced.

To effectively recruit, develop, and retain millennial nurse managers, current leaders must consider the organizational and support factors that are important to them, the authors say.
