Abstract:
Peer Support Networks - Socializing and Developing New Nurses as Leaders in Hospital Systems
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Argentine, Margaret, PhD
P.I. Institution Name:J. D. George Sr. Elementary School
Title:School Nurse
Peer Support Networks and professional socialization have been described in the literature as a means of: providing a special kind of support that no one else can (Hamilton & Kiefer, 1987); increasing self-confidence and resolving conflicting demands at work (Boyle, Popkiss-Vawter & Taunton, 1996); mental rehearsing and social conditioning to the type of role enactment demanded (Christman, 1991); and interaction between the employee and the organization (Smith, 1989.) The purpose of this presentation is to illustrate ways Peer Support Networks (PSN) can be helpful in meeting the needs of both novice nurses and nurses new to hospital systems. A second purpose is to describe how PSN’s can be used as socializing vehicles to strengthen leadership potential in its members. Participants will actively examine three case studies developed from three different individual perspectives (the novice staff nurse, the staff development facilitator, and the human resources director,) and a three different organizational type (a public academic teaching hospital and a not-for-profit Catholic hospital in the Northeast and a private academic teaching hospital in the Mid-West.) Special features of this presentation include: personal vignettes from lived experiences; practical considerations for developing, conducting and evaluating PSN’s; and underlying theoretical frameworks (MBTI and Organizational Development.)
