RCN Employment Survey 2017
Findings from the RCN Employment Survey 2017 reveal a picture of a nursing workforce under severe pressure, which has, in many respects, got worse in recent years. Now, more than ever, it is evident that nursing staff feel over-worked, underpaid and often have to grapple with short-staffing, abuse and low morale in their workplace. This is taking a personal toll on a number of staff, with many experiencing poor health and financial struggles. It is also taking a toll on patient care; most staff do not feel able to provide the level of care that they would like and many are either looking to leave their current job or leave the profession altogether.
This report presents the findings from the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Employment Survey 2017, conducted by the Institute for Employment Studies (IES).
