    Call for Papers: Contemporary Managerial Issues in the Nursing Sector – Recognizing the Year of the Nurse


    Special Issue Overview:

    In early 2019, the World Health Organization declared 2020 to be the Year of the Nurse and Midwife. The year was set in accordance with Florence Nightingale's 200th birthday; combined with the global outbreak of COVID-19, the declaration of 2020 as the Year of the Nurse and Midwife could not be more appropriate or timely.

    Objectives of this Special Issue:

    1. To integrate current and novel HRM/OB perspectives into the nursing context as a means to address relevant and practical concerns presently faced by the nursing profession.

    3. To provide a comprehensive and cross-discipline reference for management and nursing researchers and practitioners seeking to understand and leverage HRM/OB within the nursing context.

    • Recruitment of nurses – both to the profession and to underserved regions
    • Turnover and retention – what can organizations do to retain their workforce?

    • Training – how best to train nurses and the appropriateness and ethical considerations with using student nurses in a crisis?
    • Leadership – how best to manage in the nursing context and to train future leaders?
    • Groups and teams – how to develop trust and cohesion in highly dynamic contexts?
    • Psychological and physical well-being – burnout, stress, and depression
    • Workplace interventions – what can be done to promote to well-being and resilience?
    • Workplace harassment – what can be done to reduce workplace hostility?
    • Work-family issues – how to promote a more balanced workplace?
