Abstract :

One of the most common issues affecting the performance and productivity of healthcare facilities is nursing staff turnover. High rates of nursing staff turnover in healthcare facilities is a recent concern that may have negative impacts on nursing staff, patients, and healthcare organizations. Many of factors lead to increase nursing turnover rates such as nurses├ó┬?┬? dissatisfaction, lack of engagement, and poor communication in the workplace. Although many solutions for reducing turnover rate are utilized, the percentages of turnover rates among nursing staff are still a major issue. Since many members of nursing staff cannot become involved in any decision making processes or share their ideas in healthcare sectors, nurses leave their jobs in order to find another workplace where the environment and job satisfaction are better. As a result, implementing of shared-governance principles is an effective strategy that has been recommended by various researchers for enhancing nursing satisfaction and retention rates. The aim of this presentation is to discuss the effectiveness of implementing shared-governance principles on turnover rates. Therefore, implementing of shared governance can provide nurses with an opportunity for involving into organizational decisions that influence the outcomes of quality health care.
