Our new DON and ADON are holding a townhall type forum to here what the nurses have to say, complain about etc.. Administration hasd spent a butt load of money on hiring bonuses. 10,000 dollars for a 2 year commitment for experiancced nurses. some of these nurses 2 yrs are ending now and of coarse they are leaving. I work sicu and after talking to other members of the staff the bigget things for retention seem to be benefits . Ours have been cut every year for the last 3 years. retirement, and monetary acknowledgement of years of service. An example is say a bonus starting at $750 for 5 years and increasing $750 every 5 years of service. My question to you people is what if anything has you employer done to retain staff? and has it worked?
