Since 2010, many nurse researchers have been trying to understand the reasons for aged care RNs remaining in the sector rather than leaving the sector. This change demonstrates the shift of focus by researchers and the general public. However, evidence available to help manage Australian nursing workforce issues, especially the aged care nurse shortage and difficulties in recruitment processes, remains limited. There is an urgent need for more research that is driven through a positive direction, considers the multicultural working background, and comes from Australian aged care nurses’ own voices.

Therefore, I propose the research questions: RQ1) What attracted Registered Nurses to choose to work in residential aged care facilities in Queensland Australia? And RQ2) their motivation for staying?
