Abstract

In light of current nursing employment trends, nurses and employment specialists in one rural northern Iowa healthcare organization are collaborating to retain and recruit nurses. The purpose of this article is to describe how these individuals worked toward a comprehensive, cohesive approach to the development, implementation, and evaluation of learning opportunities that support these efforts. Staff development educators played key roles in developing program purposes, descriptions, curriculum, and outcome measures.
