Research-based approach sheds light on why nurses stay
Charlotte, N.C. (Vocus) October 26, 2009 -- Morehead, the human capital research firm, will host a webinar titled "A Two-Pronged Strategy to Reduce Nurse Turnover." The free hour-long webinar will be broadcast on Tuesday, November 17, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. EST.
In this webinar, David Rowlee, Ph.D., V.P., Research Services and Sara Stokes, Ph.D., Morehead's Director, Research Services will explain how to implement a two-pronged measurement strategy that can reduce the risk and expense of RNs' leaving.
Using a case study of a large, integrated healthcare system, Rowlee and Stokes will explain the importance of measuring the effectiveness of the onboarding process and best practices for doing so. They will explain a comprehensive process for measuring critical workplace factors that insulate nurses from leaving. Using Morehead's research, they will explain how to shift the focus from why nurses are leaving to understanding why they stay. This information was recently presented at the 2009 ANCC National Magnet Conference.
In this webcast, participants will learn:
- How to measure the success of the onboarding process in reducing turnover
