  • Description
    "We had a goal to lower our turnover rate (9.1%), and as a result, we were in a perpetual orientation mode. National registered nurse (RN) attrition rates for RNs in their first year of employment are reported at an even higher rate of 30%.1 It became clear that innovative solutions were needed."
