Global Edition: First-Year Nurse Retention Toolkit

Three strategies to fast-track professional growth and loyalty

Implement three critical strategies for promoting professional growth and building nurses’ loyalty early in their careers.

Young nurses starting their careers today are faced with a different work environment than their older peers. They have more opportunities to work in non-hospital environments, they have more tools to identify and apply for different jobs, and they face little to no penalty for changing jobs at the start of their careers. As a result, nursing leaders must take additional steps—beyond their existing engagement efforts—to retain these new, young employees.

This toolkit is designed to help organisations—with and without residency programs—implement three critical strategies for promoting professional growth and building loyalty early in a nurse’s career: focus on skill development, hardwire a support network, and launch career planning.
