    Anytime you have such a high turn over rate in the workplace or company this is NOT good. The chain of command/leaders/managers/superiors must SUCK for nurses to just quit like this. Back in the day, people would give anything to become nurses, now they all leave. What’s wrong? Check your higher ups.

    Let’s not forget the FACT they the hire dunce cats, who took YEARS before finally finishing high school. What do you expect, those same “nurses” are the ones who allow a simple illness/ailment to kill a person? Go back to the drawing board and hire serious, educated, people who actually want to do the job! Have you seen the faces and attitudes of the so-called nurses when you approach them? Sour grapes look better.

    Hmmm! Treat the nurses right and they will remain tight….. the nursing administration need to wake up and realise that if the current treatment given to our nurses is not improved in a few years time we will have to import nurses from China and Cuba if they are willing for come here, that is.
