This paper uses data from a large scale survey of Registered Nurses to shedlight on the determinants of nursing as a retrospective, ?with-hind-sight?,career choice. Determinants are found to vary across generations, withyounger cohorts (aged 28-37) attaching significantly more importance to paysatisfaction and within-workplace pay relativities (those more satisfied withpay and their pay relativities being more inclined to again choose nursing).From a managerial and policy perspective the results highlight the need tounderstand intergenerational differences in the weights attached to variousjob attributes and the need to tailor recruitment and retention policies in away that addresses such diverse needs.
