Interesting article. I can place myself with the feelings of the interviewees. I just wanted a job close to home as well. Not common here to start in the hospital as your first job unless it was in internship which comes with a contract. After being a nurse for a bit I do see all of these values being of importance because that is why I have stayed where I am. Although money is import, my satisfation of unit support and colleague team work is by far more important to me.

Currently, there are student nurses on our med/surg floor, and as they get through their rotation, I would love the opportunity to ask if they are considering applying upon graduation, if so, why and more importantly, if not, why.

Hospitals vary and even units within hospitals have "reputations" based on the work environment and culture. Courtesy, understanding, and teamwork are the minimum requirements for co-workers. What good is it to make a larger salary if you hate your job?

Excellent article that provides insight into both nursing leader/ manager and new nurse graduates.
