Abstract

Executive SummaryThis qualitative study used an open-ended guided interview approach with nurse managers from a 5-hospital system to assess themes driving nurse manager retention.Analysis of the interviews from the 28 participants revealed six dominant themes and eight sub-themes.Communication was the most dominant theme including sub-themes of accessibility of a superior for listening and guidance, effective communication, and clear expectations and feedback.The second most dominant theme related to approaches to leadership that were participative in planning and decision-making as well as empowering in terms of daily management.Effective administrative systems were the third major theme including systems for managing staffing, professional development, and manger compensation.The remaining three themes included achieving work/life balance, providing quality of care, and retention.
