Considering MSN project on lactation support as retention strategy

Posted by Maria Stahl @mariastahl1, Aug 5, 2022

Hello all, just joined this group/just found out it exists. 🙂 I am thinking of topics for an MSN thesis project around how feeling supported as a lactating family can positively influence nurses' intent to stay in their positions. In just chatting with some nurses at one particular MCHS site, it appeared there is need for improvement, but a nurse at another site (one of the DMCs) did not think it was an issue.

So tell me: If you OR your partner are a Mayo Clinic nurse who is lactating or has been in the past 5 or so years, do you perceive gaps in feeling supported in this critical stage in your family's life? I'm not looking so much for stories YET, just assessing whether this is something worth looking into for my MSN project.
