New nurse retention in hospitals is a national problem with significant patient safety and financial implications. This project was designed to determine retention and program completion rates of nurses who participated in a residency program. Factors influencing retention of nurses were explored using the Casey-Fink Nurse Retention Survey. Results revealed nurses' value supportive work environments, recognition, and seek mentorship for professional development. Designing nurse retention strategies is critical for organizations to prevent unnecessary turnover.
