Nurses in retirement

Approximately one million nurses will be retiring in the next five to 10 years, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. For those nurses wondering what follows after retirement, a book by Connell School of Nursing Associate Professor Patricia Tabloski and co-author Joanne Evans offers ideas for a way forward. Redefining Retirement For Nurses: Finding Meaning in Retirement (Sigma Theta Tau International) presents stories from 26 retired nurses who have continued to contribute to society and leveraged their talents in their post-retirement life. The authors state that they hope these stories inspire newly retired nurses or those planning for retirement to see how the skills and experiences gained in their nursing career can form the foundation for a meaningful life as a retiree. Tabloski talks about her book in this video from BC Libraries.
