Half of Nurses Plan Career Change, Says Survey
Nurse satisfaction was also a topic on the survey, and even though 78% of nurses said they are satisfied with their career choice as a nurse, only 66% responded saying they were satisfied in their current job position. The survey also asked nurses if they "often feel like resigning from my position," and 29% agreed with the statement.
Finally, the survey reported almost half of the nurses (44%) will continue to hold their current position, and as the economy begins to turn around, they will seek out a different career opportunity. The nurses reported they would change their current role by switching to a less demanding nursing position, working as a travel nurse, switching to part-time, retiring, or taking other steps.
