Nurses and Retirement Security: A Looming Crisis?
Date:9/4/2009

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nurses appear to be taking far better care of their patients than they are their financial futures, according to a survey released today by the Center for American Nurses and the Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER).

The Nurse Investor Education Survey reveals that nurses may be saving for retirement, but few are planning and investing to meet retirement needs. In fact, most nurses say they do not know what those needs will be.

Nearly three fourths of respondents in the second survey reported being less optimistic about their financial future compared to how they felt a year prior.

Nurses acknowledged that they do not feel they spend enough time on financial planning for retirement. The most common barriers they cited were:

  • Not enough time due to other time-consuming priorities, such as caring for children (61%)
  • Not knowing where to begin (59%)
  • Not having thought about retirement (36%)
  • Not earning enough money to save (34%)
