"In a previous study by Naude and McCabe, the factors that motivate nurses to remain working in a specific hospital were explored and described. From that research it was evident that there are factors related to leadership, management and interpersonal issues that will motivate nurses to remain working at a hospital and therefore increase the nursing staff retention rate of the hospital. This article will focus on the factors that were among the top four mentioned in that study, these include friendly and supportive staff, supportive and effective management, job satisfaction, and staff development including opportunities for new challenges. The aim of this article is to discuss leadership and management strategies to support the four most mentioned factors that will motivate nurses to remain at a specific hospital and therefore increase the retention rate at that hospital."
