    I don't think staff satisfaction is just measured by turnover only. My hospital has us do an annual survey about our job satisfaction, and the scores went down significantly this year and they're concerned about it because it puts our redesignation in jeopardy.

    i'm just waiting for a community college to have the guts to rigorously analyze the statistical methods employed by the bsn-only lobbyists who insist that bsn-"prepared" graduates are safer nurses. there seems to be some glaring conflicts of interest when the very people who stand to gain the most financially (the "universities") are the ones conducting these studies and lobbying their state boards to require bsn. i have a sneaking suspicion that some of these studies employ selection bias and other statistical fallacies. i wonder if they include bsn bridge program graduates (who have years of nursing experience) in their pool of "bsn grads" when they arrive at their conclusion that bsn grads are safer.
    i am also curious as to if this statement is truly evidence based.

    That reeeeaaaally depends on your Admin's business philosophy. I've seen a good nurse manager replaced, "in an effort to bring new insights to the floor". Subsequently, most staff were "encouraged" to leave during their annual reviews, after the staff-satisfaction survey was lower yet.

    I take small satisfaction in knowing that this mindset resulted in a new DoN, and that the replacement nurse mgr. is no longer working in management at all. Of course, we still have the same senior management, EXCEL and ICARE.

    (ICARE= I Can't Always Respect Egnorance. ""E" is for ignorant, and that's you!", as my wife's ex once proclaimed.)

    Oh, my, someone is kicking over rocks. Yes, I do believe that is the case in one study, frequently cited. Purely industry gossip, but 20 years working in and for nursing service supports my purely anecdotal assessment.

    The other consideration is that most CC faculty are "mere" MSNs- where do they have to go if they want a doctorate...? That's riiight. Don't want to whizz in your own Wheaties.

    Interesting food for thought, and I agree with what most everyone says, because I've worked at both types, and if pressed, I wouldn't be able to tell you which one was which if I didn't already know. But in their defense, the two hospitals I've worked at which were magnet were both very well-regarded, and seemed to treat their employees well. And yes, both hospitals are affiliated with the same university (which has both a nursing and a medical school).
