I just read an article on Twitter about why people leave their jobs. It is based on a massive meta-analysis across multiple industries: https://scienceforwork.com/blog/evidence-based-employee-turnover/ How much of this is true for nurses and midwives? The article also includes some great advice for retention, based on evidence Tell us your story below ...

I really appreciate all the fantastic ideas that people are posting on this website and hope that many more will be posted. It is also making me think that we need to understand what are the real, deep issues rather than the surface issues. I read a fantastic article on Twitter today. It was about using a quality technique called the Five Whys to understand the root causes of why it is hard to recruit STEM ( science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teachers. Here is the article:...

There's an article in Pulse, the GP magazine today which reports on a Swiss study that shows that the more that trainee doctors are exposed to General Practice as part of their training, the more likely they are to pick General Practice as a career. This is particularly important in a context where not enough trainees are going into General Practice: https://www.gponline.com/longer-placements-general-practice-encourage-doctors-choose-gp-careers/article/1454124  So how could we create a...

Over the weekend, I've been tweeting about this campaign to improve perceptions of nursing as a career amongst young people and got some fantastic replies from colleagues who lead nursing programmes in universities. There is a wealth of learning and experience that we could all learn from. So my idea is to set up a process to learn about what works from every university team, steal with pride and seek to spread learning across the country. Describe your story ...

Sometimes it feels like we should be grateful for a few crumbs at the table of the current system. What could we do to think more creatively and radically? How could we shift the power in the system in a positive way? How could we co-create things with patients, communities and other clinical colleagues? Maybe the future isn't less top down or bottom up but different in other ways.  Some people think that disruptive means charging around creating havoc. If we look at examples of successful...

If nurses and midwives wait to get seats in key decision-making groups and committees, they might have a long wait. Frontline colleagues actually have the most knowledge about how to solve some of our toughest NHS problems. So why couldn't we set up a nationwide challenge to mobilise groups of emerging nurse leaders, other clinical colleagues and students to tackle some big challenges? The nearest thing to this is the "15 steps challenge" that happened a few years ago. Across the country,...

Yesterday I got an email from Stanford Medicine summer school for post 16 students. It's a two week, highly intensive summer programme for students interested in a clinical profession. Here's the link: http://stanforduniversity.cmail19.com/t/ViewEmail/r/FD8D51A368B819022540EF23F30FEDED/327C372285E90308F351F20C80B74D5E   One of the issues we have is that NHS organisations don't allow work experience in clinical settings until the age of 16 when most school students undertake work experience...

There has been a lively debate on Twitter following the publication of the article by Aimee Aubeeluck, Jamie Waterall and Joanne S Lymn titled "The hidden bias that keeps men out of nursing". The article is behind a paywall. I think that the Nursing Standard should be approached to make this important article freely available so that the debate can really take off. There have been lots of good ideas as a result of this article. A group including @jomwlever is writing a story for 4-5 year...
