A new report from the Minnesota Nurses Association lists the reasons nurses say they are leaving the profession.

Nearly 500 of the 24-hundred union nurses who left a bedside position within the last year responded to the M-N-A survey.  The top factor driving them from the bedside was insufficient staffing, followed by stress or burnout, management issues, and other working conditions.  Nurses said the number-one change needed for them to return was improved staffing.  The M-N-A hosted a roundtable discussion on patient care, staffing and nurse retention Monday at the State Capitol.
