CNO Influence Key to Advanced Nurse Education
Indeed, the study showed that RNs who are undecided about continuing their nursing education identify organizational incentives and rewards as important motivators.
Incentives include tuition reimbursement, compatible work and class hours, paid sabbaticals, forgivable loans for service, pay for attending class, and online and worksite classes.
The study also looked at the other side of the coin—which nurses are more likely to continue their education—and uncovered some interesting findings.
For nurses with associate's degrees, being black, living in a rural area, having non-nursing work experience, an optimistic outlook, higher work motivation, working in the intensive care unit or step-down unit, and working the day shift are among the important predictors that they will pursue a bachelor's degree.
For those holding a bachelor's degree, being black, having non-nursing work experience, holding more than one job, living in a non-rural area, working the day shift, working voluntary overtime, lower intent to stay at current employer, and higher work motivation are among the top indicators that they will pursue a higher degree.
