High levels of nursing staff turnover have placed increasing pressure on the healthcare systems in many countries (Andrews & Dziegielewski 2005; Ruggiero 2005; Lynn & Redman 2005). The impact of high turnover in nursing staff and related nursing skills shortages has been wide-ranging, from reducing the effectiveness and productivity of health organisations to reducing access to services and the quality of patient care (Saratoga Institute & Kepner-Tregoe 1999, Hay Group 2001). Recognition of the severity of these impacts has encouraged professionals and researchers to identify new ways to attract and retain nursing staff with hundreds of articles and reports published about the issue in recent years.
