This paper discusses how nurses constitute the biggest group for providing healthcare within the healthcare system. Hence, personnel and other workplace matters are very crucial to this group. It looks at how nursing consultation has recognized the urgency for more attention on approaches that deal with generational variations, like recruitment and retention problems associated with work-life balance expectations; full-time engagement; and particular education as well as mentoring requirements that help the changing roles of new nurses into more complex settings.

Quality & Safety

From the Paper:

"Nurse Leaders who are in charge of multiple units are grossly challenged to sustain the required mix and balance of clinical and business management that is important for retention of staff nurses. With the bulk of health system issues impacting patient care and nursing, the present nurse manager is at the vanguard of attack. Being the department manager, the anticipation of the Nurse Manager is maintaining a profitable and efficient workforce in order to provide quality and feasible patient care. In case of executives to give leadership and direction for nursing unit mangers, it remains important to understand regarding the factors that facilitate retention of nurse manager. Retention has been an important issue among nursing profession. (Parsons; Stonestreet, 2003)"
