A new study examines the work values of Generation Z nurses.
These nurses, 25 and under, are now entering the workforce, bringing innovative ideas and expectations about what it means to work with them in the healthcare field. The researchers behind the study aim to understand what these values are.
Through a cross-sectional survey, the study revealed that the following work values are most important to Gen Z nurses: social/altruistic, instrumental/extrinsic, cognitive/intrinsic, and prestige (in order from most to least important).
Overall, the researchers concluded that Gen Z nurses are most interested in helping others but also are focused on job offers with security and good benefits.
