What does your hospital do to show their recognition for its nurses? What little "kudos" do you get for acknowledgement? Looking for any ideas to promote retention of staff and awarding nurses.
What kinds of things do you think would be nice to have as a nurse? Awards of vacation hours, gift certificates, staff parties, etc?
We've already gotten all of the salary increase they're willing to give and better shift differential. Our ratios are fine. It's just that I'm looking for ideas to help people get excited about coming to work- how to make things a little bit fun. There's got to be places that have a good handle on this.
