Annual turnover rate for nurses is 17.5%, and while limited department-level data exists, annual RN turnover rate in the Emergency Department is estimated at 21.5%, the second highest of any medical specialty.
To better understand department-level data on turnover rates and the factors associated with them, the Studer Group, together with representatives from ACEP and ENA, have created the 2019 Emergency Department Nurse Retention Study.
Please ask your ED RN Managers to complete a brief, 90-second survey to help with the study. Responses will be confidential and aggregate data will help gain better insight into the problem and gather solutions. Begin survey.
