American Nurse Journal (AJN) has just published “Nurse turnover: Understand it, reduce it” a new article by CGFNS President and CEO, Franklin Shaffer and Executive Editor of American Nurse Today, Leah Curtin highlighting the causes and effects of nurse turnover. Drs. Shaffer and Curtin provide suggestions on how to create a positive working environment for nurses in order to achieve the greatest quality of care.

Managing turnover is about mindfully creating a workplace culture that supports high performers financially, intellectually, and psychologically while at the same time providing a means to efficiently and fairly weed out poor performers.
