Abstract

This research has been conducted with the objective to understand how the shortage of nurses has been managed by the private psychiatric hospitals in Dublin, and whether or not there is a link between the historical high levels of turnover among nursing with the shortage issue. The author also intends to understand if the private sector has more difficulties to recruit and retain nurses than the public sector has.

In order to accomplish realistic results, the researcher will conduct a study involving the three main private psychiatric hospitals in Dublin and using qualitative and quantitative methodologies the researcher intends to successfully gather value information in order to get into a strong conclusion. A survey will be sent out to nurses and interviews will be conducted with high management of these hospitals.

The research intends to use the results of this research supported by the literature used in the course of this study to understand what are the reasons employees aren’t being committed to their employer as well as the reason there are so many nurse vacancies that cant be filled. The author also wants to understand why the shortage of nurses has become a very difficult issue to be managed by the healthcare system in Ireland.

The research intends to collect as many answers as possible in order to make value recommendation to help the employers address the issue by implementing an efficient strategy to improve recruitment and retention among nurses employed by the private psychiatric sector.
