Full-time Equivalents and Financial Costs Associated with Absenteeism, Overtime, and Involuntary Part-time Employment in the Nursing Profession (2002)

In light of the current and looming shortage of nurses in Canada, The Nursing Strategy for Canada was developed to strengthen and maximize nursing human resources by implementing broad, planned evidence–based and long–term recruitment and retention initiatives. Within that strategy, the Canadian Nursing Advisory Committee (CNAC) was established to make recommendations for improving the quality of work life for Canadian nurses. To support its work, the committee commissioned a number of studies to increase its understanding of a select group of issues. Key among these is the financial costs of overtime, use of agency nurses, absenteeism and turnover.

The primary objective of this study was to provide quantitative estimates as to the extent and costs associated with absenteeism, overtime and involuntary part–time employment. In addition, the research examines issues of turnover and the use of agency nurses within the nursing profession.
