[Research Presentation] Purpose: to discuss instrument development for use in creating a positive work place through identification of performance competencies of charge nurses. Methods: qualitative, cross sectional, descriptive design. Results: the development of an instrument to appraise charge nurse performance, identify potential charge nurses, design charge nurse development and orientation programs as a means of creating a positive workplace and increase retention of nurses. Conclusion: Research instruments are critical in collecting data for evidenced based nursing practice. While the number of instruments measuring phenomena of interest to nursing has grown substantially, more tools are needed to gather the evidence on which to base practice. Considerable research has looked at nursing leadership and job satisfaction, yet the focus has been largely on nurse executives and nurse managers. There is a substantial gap in the research regarding the creation of a positive work environment and development of policies that would impact human resources as well as how first-line managers may impact nurse retention and what characteristics are necessary in an effective charge nurse. This paper/poster discusses instrument development using examples from a pilot study funded by a local Sigma Theta Tau chapter.
