Voices from the Front Line of Nursing in Social Care

Voices from the Front Line of Nursing in Social Care

We have been inundated with requests to participate in the research project ‘Voices from the Front Line of Nursing: Exploring Recruitment and Retention of Nurses in the Social Care Sector’.  The response from providers has been fantastic and clearly demonstrates the importance and relevance of this study.

Throughout September, members of the Scottish Care team will be travelling across the country, interviewing nurses and asking them about their experiences of working in the social care sector.  We want to know what attracted them into the job, the challenges they face and what makes them want to stay……or leave.  A report of the findings of the research will written and launched at the Scottish Care Home Conference on the 18th November.


We are sorry that we have not been able to visit all the organisation who expressed interest in participating in this research.  We are however holding a Nursing Recruitment and Retention Seminar on Tuesday 6th December, to which all organisations interested in progressing the findings of our report will be invited. The venue and time for this meeting has yet to be confirmed but more information will be shared on our website over the coming weeks.
