From the abstract:
The effects of a nursing labor management partnership (NLMP) on nurse turnover and nurse satisfaction were examined.
Job satisfaction and retention are among the factors related to the nursing shortage. The NLMP was a specific intervention where nursing leaders, both nonbargaining and bargaining, worked collaboratively to improve patient care and outcomes.
There was a significant decrease in nurse turnover and a significant increase in nurse satisfaction (from moderate to high) post-NLMP.
