With all the talk about a nursing shortage, nurse satisfaction is a key priority in healthcare, and uncovering and addressing issues for nurses is more critical than ever.
Minority Nurse recently launched a Nursing Satisfaction Survey to learn more about nursing education and career topics beneficial to our readers and help boost talent retention and create a more productive workforce.
Preliminary results of our Nursing Satisfaction Survey indicate that 81% of nurses are at least somewhat satisfied in their nursing jobs, and those nurses not satisfied cite burnout and lack of recognition as the top reasons above compensation.
Eighty-three percent of nurses considering changing jobs say they plan to stay in nursing, with 29% of nurses surveyed saying they have a second job. Only 9% of nurses surveyed have a second job outside of nursing, with the top side gig being a nanny.
Nurses say the top three characteristics when choosing a new employer include compensation, work-life balance, and career advancement.
