Abstract : A survey of the registered nurses working in five hospitals in one area reveals that they are influenced to different degrees by a variety of employment factors and are attracted to the hospital that offers the factors they consider most important. Generally, the most important factors to the community hospital nurses are those that make work compatible with home responsibilities; they will sacrifice material rewards in order to have 'choice of shift.' In general, the Federal hospital nurses are most concerned with the more career connected factors of 'pay rate,' 'employee benefits,' and 'advancement.' (Author)
