Question to posts below: (During your practicum, determine what clinical problem or issue the organization is facing. Discuss two implications for nursing).
There are several clinical issues that should be addressed however, the biggest concern facing the organization is nurse retention. Certainly, my organization is not the only one facing this growing problem, this concern is across the spectrum of health care. There are many nurses that express “burnout” as the biggest reason for leaving an organization, at least for my facility. Not enough focus was placed on adequate staffing and management visibility. In order to safely care for patients, there should be appropriate staffing of nurses and active visibility of management.
