#1 Should I stay or Should I go? Reviewing the Evidence on Nurses' turnover
Health workforce stability can contribute to better care delivery, and health organisations incur costs every time a nurse leaves their employment. Policy makers need a firm grasp of what makes nurses want to nurse, even in challenging circumstances, and what will retain and motivate them.
