for nurses in the workforce, new graduate
RNs should have no problem at obtaining a job, it's just a matter of whether or not these new graduate RNs will be able to find direct employment after college into the hospital of their choice due to various factors and considerations that may affect them in the process. Recent recession has actually eased the current nursing shortage in many areas of the U.S. due to an increase in registered nurse employment. Jobs Available After College in the Nursing Field Research Presentation: Online nursing education programs are also available: - Convenient - Save money as well as time - Chat rooms to talk and discuss with instructors and
other students No major difference The economy and the recent recession have affected both current and future nurses. Cont. The field of nursing will always be a major
career as long as there is human life: constant need for care and compassion sense of safety and security when a nurse has worked in the hospital for a long time and has acquired a lot of experience there. The impact of registered nurse supply on quality of care is a very important factor affecting many hospitals. Cont. Works Cited - Many non-working, married RNs reenter the nursing workforce when their spouses lose their jobs. = growing career opportunities = Good news for hospitals, but new graduate RNs are having a difficult time finding immediate hospital employment at this time. Education and training in college is very important in order to become a successful registered nurse (RN). Cont. The impact of registered nurse supply on quality of care is a very important factor affecting many hospitals. I chose this topic because after high school I plan on majoring in nursing at Walsh University. Why? Nursing is one of the most popular career choices,
but the demand for registered nurses remains high. good news for new graduate RNs some nurses may seem more marketable compared to others Hospitals offer incentives and tuition assistance - helps students interested in the nursing field to be able to afford the educational expenses that come with pursuing in this career In turn, nursing students may need to work full-time for that medical facility for a set amount of time following the completion of their degree. - if contract is not achieved= hospital can demand repayment from the student - see it as a way to mend the high demand for RNs in the hospital environment The economy and the recent recession have affected both current and future nurses. Education and training in college is very important in order to become a successful registered nurse (RN). Cont. Magnet status: high emphasis on baccalaureate degree and the encouragement of advanced nursing education while offering incentives or tuition assistance - increased amount of knowledge and experience that nurses attain Life-long learning both during and after college is very important. - 76% of people felt that nurse should have a 4-year degree or higher - keep up with new discoveries Once the recession ends: - many current nurses are expected to leave their jobs in the hospitals = a significant nurse shortage = open spots to be filled by new graduate RNs In a personal interview, Renee Genetin, a senior at Walsh University's Nursing Program, stated that "hospitals are not hiring many nurses right now so it's going to be harder to find a job when [I] graduate." She also stated that many current employed RNs are older - they will be retiring soon = good news for students interested in attaining a career in the nursing field American Nurses Association (ANA) has nursing insider news latest news on current events associated with nursing and healthcare issues - will directly affect new graduate RNs and their future careers Staff retention is an important practice used by many hospitals throughout the country. - hire more consistent, well-trained, and dedicated nurses. Staff turnover: - measure of how many nurses stop working at a hospital = allows for job opportunities - personal and environment factors are essential - may potentially ease predicted nursing shortage Benefits: - specific needs and wants are better met - patient/nurse relationships are strengthened shortage of nurses is greatly concerning society - may directly affect amount of time nurses have to devote to each patient New graduate RNs are the largest amount of available nurses in the current job market. = "strategically essential to ameliorating the nursing shortage" - good news, always be jobs available after college in the nursing field more patients results in more RNs employed in that particular hospital - also, staffing levels must balance with the intensity of care required = more RNs may escalate focus on prevention and surveillance - When the supply of RNs in the surrounding geographic area decreases, the result is a decrease in the RN staffing levels in hospitals. Many nurses generally work in different counties or even different states. = may potentially hurt local hospitals = increase in overtime hours Mandatory nurse staffing ratios is becoming more of a current issue in the healthcare industry - In a personal interview, Mary Jean Luke, an RN for twenty-seven years, believes that mandatory nurse staffing ratios in hospitals is "not necessary but is something that people need to be aware of." = not enough nurses then quality of care goes down = too many nurses then work won't be getting done May influence the amount of jobs available to students in the nursing field after they graduate from college. Conclusion Field of nursing will always be a major career - high demand = remain that way for quite some time New graduate RNs will have no trouble at acquiring a job after the completion of their major - just a matter of whether or not new graduate RNs will be able to find direct employment after college into the hospital of their choice due to various factors and considerations that may affect them in the process. - stay highly focused on their education and - be aware and up to date on current events that may affect their future Anyone interested in procuring a job after college in the nursing field should: Fig. 1.
