In this study, we developed formulas to calculate nursing assistant turnover and stability rates, identified reasons for termination and facility-specific strategies to reduce turnover, and evaluated the effectiveness of implemented strategies. Although turnover remained relatively unchanged (23% in 1, 28% in 2), the stability rate remained high (76% in 1, 75% in year 2). Tracking turnover rates without tracking stability yields an incomplete picture of a facility's efforts to attract and retain qualified employees. Achieving high stability rates in addition to low turnover rates are important goals, and we have included some recommendations.
