There are several different factors that play on a hospital's ability to retain nursing staff members, said Donald Zamora, director of employee relations for Stabler Hospital.Zamora holds a Masters degree in the science of nursing.First, of course, is pay, said Zamora.The amount of money that a nurse gets paid plays a big part.Then there is the physician interaction-we happen to have a very good group of doctors here that get along well with our nurses..Zamora indicated that work environment plays a large role, as well.We are probably in better shape where that is concerned than other hospitals, he said.Across the nation, and actually throughout the world there is a drastic shortage of registered nurses, and it do not seem to be getting any better, according to a recent Journal of the American Medical Association study.JAMA predicts that by 2010, more than 40 percent of the nursing work force will be over the age 50 and that by 2020, the RN work force will fall short of demand by 20 percent.
