Writing a Problem Question In home care (P), how does retention interviews (I), compared to a current model without retention interviews (C) affect job satisfaction with home care nurses. (O) “P” = Population- Will be home care nurses.  The specific agency will be Northwell at home (formerly Northshore lij Home care) using the registered nurses of their Staten Island office. “I” = Intervention: The intervention will be to use retention interviews to increase current job satisfaction among the registered nurses “C” = Comparison: will be to compare current job satisfaction which does not have a use of a retention interview, with a evidence based practice of using retention interviews to help increase satisfaction “O” = Outcome(s): is the registered nurses will have increased job satisfaction with using retention interviews. “T” = Time: I would be using the minimum amount of time / capstone hours to implement the change and reevaluate job satisfaction.   The gap is practice low job satisfaction with Homecare nurses. The question at hand would be to come up with a solution to increase overall job satisfaction. The determination of the need of increased job satisfaction came from current and ongoing complaints from staff and the most recent results of the employee engagement survey which alerted management that decreased satisfaction is a growing problem.  Currently Northwell at home agency has a anonymous employee engagement survey, administered by Press Ganey.   According to Dempsey and Reilly (2016) Press Ganey is a provider of patient experience measurement, performance analytics, and strategic advisory solutions for healthcare organizations. Press Ganey measures nurse engagement through a online survey designed to assess multiple facets of the nurse experience, including nurse engagement, nurse job satisfaction, and the nurse work environment. (Dempsey $ Reilly, 2016). This survey is the documented data available from Northwell at home’s home care organization.  In addition, Northwell at home is having an increased amount of sicks calls and Human resources / management complaints regarding work load.  Each complaint is handled on an individual basis as they are made.  In a study by Maiko, Noriko, & Yukari (2016) a look at collegial support in regards to a higher retention rate is evaluated.  It gives statistical data of how Homecare nurses have a higher turnover rate than the hospital.  The objective of this study was to determine the reasons that the home care nurses had low retention and satisfaction rates related to perceptions of collegial support. Reasons of low satisfaction included lack of support of co-workers and as well as a hinderance of dialogue in the work place.  Knowing that this is an issue in the profession of home care nurses, implementing retention interviews to both provide dialogue and to help uncover other areas that may be a concern to the home care staff is the reason for this capstone study. Another study that states a need for change is by Twigg,& McCullough (2014) where nurse retention is analyzed and a review of strategies to create and enhance positive practice environments in in nursing is revealed. This study looks at the administrative interventions that improve staff retention and satisfaction. One area of need for satisfaction was an increased governance structure that can flow information between staff nurses and those in leadership.  These types of structures provide access to the nursing executive and give an opportunity for nurses to voice their concerns (Twigg,& McCullough, 2014).  A structure that could result in closing the gap of issues noted in Twigg & McCullough’s study mention above would be a retention interview.  This would provided communications as well as pass information, suggestions and complaints off to management to let the nurses have a voice and make them feel a platform is being provided for a positive practice environment.  The previous mentioned issues are the reason for the formation of the PICTO question.   Reference   Dempsey, C., & Reilly, B.
