Retention of Nurse Managers in Healthcare Vina Mealey Thomas Edison State College Dr. Jenna Hatcher-Keller June 10, 2012 Abstract Nurse Managers have vast knowledge and experiences not only in managerial work but also in care giving which enables them to effectively accomplish their duties contributing to the overall success of health care organizations. However, in the course of their duties, nurse manager’s performance and work output are affected by various factors such as burnout, poor management systems or policies and inadequate compensation among other factors.
