Our independent survey took place well before the advent of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Still, it came at a time that we had the opportunity to both celebrate nurses’ contributions and recognize them. The results yield insights based on the views of a group of next-generation nurses (in practice less than 10 years) who are tuned in to today’s rapidly changing healthcare system.
The research also examines how next-generation nurses differ from their experienced counterparts (those practicing 10 years or more) in attitudes, beliefs, and priorities for the future. The findings serve as a wake-up call for industry as we navigate the rapidly transitioning nurse workforce.
