Congratulations on completing this week and thank you for joining us.

This week you have:

  • identified the key challenges facing nursing today
  • discussed situations causing stress in nursing and approaches to management
  • considered the nature of violence in nursing and identified sources of support
  • explored the pros and cons of migration and discussed strategies to minimise loss

Next week …

Next week we’ll look at how the professional image of nurses and nursing may have contributed to a reduction in recruitment and retention. We will look at the impact of shortages and approaches to improving retention. You’ll also be asked to design a strategy aimed at increasing recruitment of qualified nurses and receive feedback in a peer review activity.

We look forward to seeing you then.
