Title:
Walk A Mile with a Nurse
Abstract:
Walk A Mile with a Nurse
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Wilhoit, Kathryn
Nurses do not feel valued! This no secret. In the Premier Retention study of 1999 it was reported in their surveys of nurses that the lack of appreciation is a major concern for many nurses in a variety of settings. One strategy developed and implemented which has been successful is Walk A Mile with a Nurse. An event in which CEOs, Vice Presidents, Board Members, City Councilmen, Senators, and Representatives are invited to spend a morning shadowing a nurse in an area of their choice. With the patient confidentiality and permission forms signed, the walker follows the nurse. Not only do the nurses feel special, but also their team members. The patients are really impressed that a board member or a CEO is really interested in the front line patient care activities. At the conclusion of the event a lunch is provided where the nurse and his or her walker eat together. Most importantly each walker tells what impresses him or her the most. Their comments and observations of the walker are video taped. Once completed the managers get copies of the videotapes and they are shown to team members on all shifts. Front line staff are impressed to see and hear the CEOs, Vice Presidents, Board Members, City Councilmen, Senators, and Representatives praise them. They report when surveyed that they feel more valued. This poster presentation will provide steps in preparation for such an event and what has worked as well as what has not worked for the program.
