Abstract: The Canadian Nurses Association predicts the nursing shortage will rise to an estimated 60,000 Registered Nurses RNs by the year 2022. Further compounding this issue is the approximate 14-61% of nursing graduates who will change nursing roles or exit the profession within two years of practice. Using the Glaserian grounded theory method, the purpose of this study was to examine the basic psychosocial process labelled Letting Go involved in how newly-graduated RNs in western Canada arrive at the decision to exit the nursing profession within five years of entry into the workforce through semi-structured interviews. The study findings revealed the following themes: Navigating Constraints of the Healthcare System and Workplace; Negotiating Social Relationships, Hierarchies, and Troublesome Behaviours; Facing Fears, Traumas and Challenges; and Weighing Competing Rewards and Tensions. This study adds to a growing body of knowledge to understand new RN attrition from the profession.
