Long Term Care Director and Assistant Director of Nursing Study

LHP Skillnet and the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland (RCSI) are researching the educational needs and perceptions of work environment, burnout, and turnover intention of Directors of Nursing in Long Term Care.

The Director of Nursing/Person in Charge can be complex and challenging, especially in nursing homes, with increased demands, particularly since the pandemic.

The research aims to explore the potential factors that can influence the
intention to leave with nursing leaders, which could help identify interventions to mitigate these factors.

The ultimate goal is to produce an actionable report highlighting how key competencies, supported by education, training, and coaching, can reduce workplace stress and increase the retention of nursing leaders in the Long-Term Care setting.

The survey is anonymous, and Directors of Nursing and Assistant Directors of Nursing are encouraged to participate.

The information gathered will create a comprehensive report shared with healthcare providers, policymakers, and other stakeholders to drive change and improve the work environment for nursing leaders in Long Term Care.

If you are a Director of Nursing or Assistant Director of Nursing, your
participation in this research is vital, help us gain insights into the challenges faced by nursing leaders and develop strategies to support and incentivise them.
