Summary
The purpose of this survey was to gather information to assist educators, administrators, and policymakers in the development of strategies for the recruitment and retention of registered nurses. To that end, nurses taking the Massachusetts licensure exam were queried about their reasons for going into nursing, their nursing career goals, their attitudes toward the nursing profession, their preferences for various branches of the nursing profession, and the importance they placed on various aspects of work in general, e.g., job security, high income, and good opportunities for advancement. Respondents were also questioned about their job searches and their current or impending jobs: how the job was found, number of applications filled out and offers received, number of hours usually worked, earnings, type of medical facility, shift usually worked and preferred, commuting distances, public transportation and child care needs, whether student clinical experience was obtained with the employer, planned length of stay at the job, and the importance of various factors that attracted them to the position, such as the attractiveness of the town or city where the job was located, salary and benefit levels, availability of parking and child care, and job flexibility. In addition, the survey asked respondents how and when they decided to become nurses, how they found out about educational options in nursing, how much basic nursing education they received and how it was financed, which factors attracted them to the schools from which they graduated, and how much of their basic nursing education was devoted to clinical experience. Background information on respondents includes age, sex, citizenship, race, ethnic group, marital status, education, education goals, family income, number and ages of related persons living in the household, usage of child care and elderly care services, parents' education and occupations, and mother's employment status at various stages of the respondent's childhood and adolescence
