Abstract

ABSTRACT

Shared employment is a promising form of flexible scheduling for career-oriented CNSs who wish to remain in the workforce but at the same time need to work part-time temporarily to attend to family responsibilities. The organization benefits from increased productivity and less turnover. While job sharing is known to be extremely successful, documenting more widespread practice of this work option is necessary. Nurse administrators should be sensitive to the parental concerns of nurses, particularly CNSs, whose valuable knowledge and skills will continue to be in high demand in the healthcare marketplace.
