While RN’s reported an improved sense of job satisfaction between 2011 and 2012, one-third of nurses continue to report interest in moving on to something different in the near future, according to a survey by AMN Healthcare. Job satisfaction is a critical factor in retaining nurses and improving patient outcomes. This is particularly important since staff turnover reduces productivity and efficiency at both the organizational and unit level.
