Workforce retention strategies for RPNs within the home and community health care sector
The current nursing shortage in the home and community care (HCC) sector is cause for concern. The demand for home care services is greater than what organizations can provide, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, leading to high turnover rates. This study will explore the personal and professional resilience of RPNs working in the HCC sector and the role of stakeholders in creating an environment that supports their resilience.
Findings from this study will be used to provide evidence for stakeholders in developing and implementing strategies to increase recruitment-retention and resilience of RPNs in the HCC sector.
