• The AMN 2019 Survey of Registered Nurses reveals growing pressures on the millions of nurses who provide hands-on care and other services to Americans every day.

    Highlights from the survey:

    • More than one in five RNs hold second jobs – including about 273,000 nurses with two full-time jobs
    • Nearly one in five RNs say working more than one job negatively impacts their quality of work – nearly two in five say it negatively affects their quality of life
    • 41% of RNs are victims of bullying, incivility or other forms of workplace violence – another 27% say they’ve witnessed workplace violence
    • 86% of Baby Boomer nurses plan to retire in the next five years
    • 81% of nurses are satisfied with career choice, and 75% are satisfied with quality of care they provide.
    • But, 66% worry their job is affecting their health, and 44% say they often feel like quitting

    The survey also suggested solutions to the challenges nurses face, including improving flexibility and work-life balance; greater support for diversity in the healthcare workplace; enhancing professional development support; and greater emphasis on safety practices, team engagement, and effective leadership.
