Abstract

Registered nurse turnover can drastically affect the quality of patient care while costing more than 1 billion dollars. The ongoing nursing shortage makes it hard to replace nurses, necessitating a novel approach to reduce nurse turnover. The authors discuss an evidence-based protocol that improves organizational commitment among nurses as a way to retain nurses through facilitating autonomy, improving communication, and offering recognition and rewards to nursing staff.
