Strategic Nursing Leadership: Leading Diverse Groups with Targeted Initiatives
Abstract:
Strategic Nursing Leadership: Leading Diverse Groups with Targeted Initiatives
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Hill, Wendy, RN, MN
P.I. Institution Name:Capital Health
Title:Executive Nursing Officer and Chief Operating Officer
The national discussions on the need to re-establish nursing leadership have been gaining momentum and support at the operational level. The Capital Health Region in Alberta identified in 1999 the need for a strategic nursing voice at the senior executive level. The Capital Health Region is a diverse region with over 7,000 nurses in 3 regulated professional groups RNs, LPNs and RPNs providing care to an over 1.5 million patient referral base. To meet the needs of these staff and the region the model for nursing leadership had to be dynamic and efficient. Capital Health established the Executive Nursing officer position and the department of regional nursing affairs. This small focused group of nursing professionals has targeted issues key and integral to the nursing workforce. Work over the last few years has been directed at full scope utilization of all nurses, expanded scopes of practice for LPNs and RNs, stabilizing the workforce through recruitment and retention, education funding and continuing educational opportunities for nurses. These targeted initiatives have demonstrated the effectiveness of collaboration across a large region, multiple stakeholders and all levels of employee, frontline to executive. This presentation will cover the process for establishing the mandate of the regional nursing affairs office, the successes of the work to date and recommendations that can be applied in all sizes of sites and sectors.
