In June 2017, American Nurse Today conducted a survey to measure trends in nursing. With almost 6,000 respondents, we collected valuable data related to workforce demographics, salary and benefits, and job satisfaction.
But the work of nursing has many more complex facets than can be reflected in these straightforward measurements. That’s why we also asked how nurses perceive various issues and challenges facing the profession. How do they experience issues such as bullying and incivility? What kind of healthy lifestyle changes have they been successful at implementing? What challenges do they face in their practices? How have electronic health records (EHRs) affected how they do their jobs?
Part 2 of the survey results explore these factors. You can read Part 1 of the results here.
