"Should I Stay or Should I Go?" Examining Staffing Turnover Rates in LTC

"Should I Stay or Should I Go?," the punk classic from The Clash, provides an appropriate soundtrack for a study of turnover rates of Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) working in nursing homes.  "Stayers, Leavers, and Switchers Among Certified Nursing Assistants in Nursing Homes: A Longitudinal Investigation of Turnover Intent, Staff Retention and Turnover," published in The Gerontologist, suggests that pay rates were not, surprisingly, a major predictor of turnover rates. 

It would be interesting to see whether the contributing factors identified in this study, published in 2011, including low job satisfication and the absence of health insurance, would be more or less influential in turnover of long-term care workers in the home.
