What Do Nurses Really Want?
A survey conducted by AMN Healthcare and covered in the San Diego Business Journal indicates that nurses of the future, at least, will not be the money-grubbing healthcare prostitutes that some would have you believe they are. Apparently, working conditions are the priority for the 1,600 students that were surveyed.
They want to work at a quality facility, have low nurse-to-patient ratios and reasonable hours and shifts. Pay was fourth on the list.
Nine percent said that they would like to be travel nurses.
No matter how you slice it, there still won’t be enough nurses so how are the ratios and hours issues going to be addressed? Read the survey results here.
