Abstract [en]

The Swedish labour market is facing major challenges with regard to supply of skilled staff and recruitment of new employees. This concerns especially the welfare sector where an important group to attract is nurses. The purpose of this study is to elucidate what factors students in the nursing program at Umeå University value as important in future employers.The results from this study could be of value for the organisations to take into account; also,for employer branding. To find this out, an internet-based questionnaire was sent out via email to the nursing students attending semester 4–6. Based on the answers received, it is shown that the nursing students at Umeå University value social work environment, a high salary and good leadership as the three most important in future employment. High wages were equally valued between the genders but all the other areas where more highly valued by women. This study shows similarities to previous research within the field and how it looks today in the nursing profession, that is the soft and post-materialistic values where highly valued. What contradicts,and even makes this study unique, is that the nursing students also valued the materialistic values a safe and secure employment and a high salary as an incredibly important factor in their future professional life. To attract these students future employers has to offer a good social work environment where they can have fun with colleagues and ask for help if needed. They must also be given an adequate salary that corresponds to what their work actually entails.
