Do you have any best practices that have decreased RN turnover and/or increased RN recruitment? What are your success stories?

money, scheduling, no mandatory overtime all are good things. also, make your staff(all of them) feel part of the team. we recently got a new manager and it's like she filters everything through one specific charge nurse(who everyone has had problems with). several times we have found out (by the manager) that this charge has not told the truth about what manager has supposedly said. either that or the manager is lying----we think the charge is lying or stretching the truth because the manager has denied things in front of her and we know this charge too well. BUT, we all heard negative things about this manager before she came to us but agreed to keep an open mind. point being--keep in contact with all your staff and ask thier input, listen to thier ideas, let them know what is going on(you, not some go between), and make sure things are done fairly. make people feel like you all are the team instead of just a few team members that make the rules with all the rest to do the work. it will be appreciated.
