Share on Facebook
Employed nurses feel a greater sense of loyalty to their current positions during the recession, according to a study reported in McKnight’s.

The study, published in the March issue of the American Journal of Nursing, found that job commitment was strong despite no discernible increase in income or job satisfaction from 2006 to 2009. The study also projected, however, that RNs may begin looking for new positions and significantly increase staff turnover rates when the recession ends and the job market expands.
