Abstract:
Significance: Job-sharing a nursing leadership position is both unique and complex in a tertiary care environment. Job-sharing can be an opportunity to bring more talents and styles to a nursing leadership team, while at the same time maintaining a high level of accountability and outcomes. This job option also increases the opportunities for individuals with a desire for work as CNS's that choose to work less than full-time. Flexibility in hiring nursing leaders will enhance the pool of applicants available to fill these critical roles. Background: In order to create a highly functioning job-share there are critical elements, which must be present. These include individual commitment to the role and the other job-share participant, organizational support, manager understanding of the role, tolerance within the culture for an individual's schedule and communication and trust within the group. Description: Within a full-time budgeted position for a unit-based CNS position, there are two individuals that job-share. There are elements of structure that facilitate the seamless accountability, while at the same time appreciating the individual strengths and areas for growth. The Nurse Manager must commit themselves to the job-share and each individual in order to assure a functional nursing leadership team. Outcome: The potential for organizational, staff, patient and individual satisfaction are great when a job-share is successfully developed. Conclusion: A well- constructed job-share is a potential option when considering applicants for the role of CNS. Implications: For organizations with challenges to find applicants that are willing to work full-time, a possible strategy can be to consider the capacity of the organization, unit, role group and individuals to create a job-share that will maximize the potential benefits within all CNS spheres of influence.
