Nursing Recruitment and Retention

In order to retain our current nurses and recruit new ones, FirstHealth focuses on the factors that most affect why a nurse chooses to accept a position — and stays. These include the hospital's reputation, competitive pay, flexible scheduling, continuing education and safe patient workloads.

 

OverviewMake A Donation

Our hospital management understands that nurse recruitment and retention are competitive aspects of the health care business and have significant financial implications. A recent study found that replacing a registered nurse costs between $62,100 to $67,100, and up to $185,000 to replace a critical care nurse.

 

Adopting a culture of retention is key to maintaining adequate staffing levels to meet the complex care needs of our FirstHealth patients. Your support through The Foundation of FirstHealth helps make us a health system of choice for current and future nurses.
