Work Values of Generation Z Nurses OBJECTIVES To determine the work values of Generation Z nurses, a new generation in the current workforce. BACKGROUND A new generation of nurses is now part of the nursing workforce. Generation Z nurses, born in 1995 (aged ≤24 years), will bring new expectations and ideals about life and work into healthcare work settings. METHODS A descriptive, cross-sectional survey design was used to assess the work values of traditional baccalaureate Generation Z nursing students using the Lyons Work Values Survey. RESULTS The work value component ranked most important by participants was social/altruistic, followed by instrumental/extrinsic, cognitive/intrinsic, and prestige. CONCLUSION Helping people and having a job that is interesting and engaging while also offering job security and good benefits were the most important future Generation Z nurse work values. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Journal of Nursing Administration Wolters Kluwer Health
