Nurses have always left nursing for other jobs and careers. However, there is some evidence that suggests this occurs now more than ever before as new generations join the workforce, and non-health employers recognize the skills that nurses gain in the profession. The authors provide data on the movement of nurses to careers outside the nursing profession in Australia and reasons for this occurrence and propose solutions.
