Prevalence, characteristics of nurse leader turnover intention

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

This study by nurse researchers at the Orvis School of Nursing, University of Nevada, Reno, investigates the prevalence of nurse leader turnover intention and the contributing factors.

Data from 50,273 participants in the 2018 National Sample Survey of Registered Nurses were used in the analysis, with a final sample of 1,310.

The researchers found that age, federally assisted student loans, and hours worked in a typical week predicted turnover intention. Low dissatisfaction and ability to practice to the full extent of their knowledge, education, and training were strongly associated with turnover intention.

The findings contribute to a more in-depth discovery of the causes of nurse leader turnover and future research, the authors say.
