Abstract (Summary)

The U.S. health care industry incurs a high level of employee turnover year over year, which results in significant costs for organizations in the sector. Specific to the field of nursing, some pharmaceutical health care managers lack effective management strategies to successfully mitigate nursing turnover intentions to reduce organizational losses. The purpose of this single case study was to explore the strategies health care managers used to mitigate nursing turnover intentions. The conceptual framework was social exchange theory. Data were collected using semistructured interviews. The targeted population included 9 managers from a pharmaceutical company in the state of New Jersey who demonstrated successful strategies for mitigating nursing turnover intentions as evidenced by meeting 3 defined inclusion criteria. Interviews were conducted, recorded, transcribed, and member checked for accuracy. Data were analyzed using Yin’s 5-step approach, that included compiling data, disassembling data, reassembling data, interpreting data, and concluding data. Three major themes were identified, which included individualization, communication, and development. Findings from this study may contribute to positive social change by providing health care managers with strategies they can use to decrease nursing turnover. Decreased nursing turnover may lead to increased nursing skills, improved patient outcomes, and a higher positive perception of care within the community, which could have a positive influence on organizational profitability and sustainability.
