At HHS, NHSRU researchers retrieved data from the hospital's Human Resource Information System (HRIS), analyzing and synthesizing data sources not usually accessed for this purpose. The analysis revealed some interesting aspects of the HHS nursing workforce. It showed that HHS, with one of the largest nursing workforces in the country, is heading into an impending problem if it doesn't increase the number of younger nurses on its staff. It also found the internal turnover at HHS was high with 32 per cent of the nursing workforce changing jobs or status. In contrast, the overall retention rate was high and the degree of external turnover was low. The findings also showed younger nurses were accessing paid leave more than their senior counterparts.
