Background: In most countries’ nurses are in short supply, but not as acute as in developing countries. An advanced world fulfils its role by attracting nurses from other countries, while developing countries cannot compete with higher wages.

Aims & Objective: The current study was undertaken to understand the attrition analysis and retention strategies among staff nurses working at Saveetha Medical College and Hospital, Chennai.

Material & Methods: The data was collected, organized and analyzed in terms of both descriptive and inferential statistics.

Results: The study findings showed that a vast majority of them i.e. 35 samples (70%) had high attrition rate and 15 samples (30%) had moderate attrition rate. The results of the research showed that recommended counseling and social assistance will help and improve the quality of life of nurses and allow them to stay in the same hospital.

Conclusion: The nurse administrator should motivate the staff nurses by conducting programs for their good lifestyle and service education program should be organized for nurses to update their knowledge.
