Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The relationship between nurse manager skill and unit performance is well documented (Nursing Executive Center, 2004). At the same time, recruiting and retaining talented nurse managers is becoming increasingly difficult in light of expanding role expectations and decreasing resources. One Magnet hospital created a multi-faceted leadership development program designed to meet the needs of both new and more experienced managers. Transformational leadership principles and the Nurse Manager Leadership Partnership Learning Domain Framework served as the program's conceptual framework. The program was developed based on interviews and focus groups with nurse managers. Program components included a new manager orientation program, education for manager preceptors, bi-monthly nurse manager book-journal clubs, quarterly leadership development sessions, and a manager mentoring program. Topics for both the journal/book club and leadership development sessions were chosen based on leadership development priorities identified at the beginning of the fiscal year. Program outcomes were tracked via a Leadership Development dashboard and reviewed quarterly. First year program outcomes were extremely positive. Nurse managers' satisfaction with the orientation experience increased following their participation in the new manager orientation program. In addition, over 30 contact hours of professional development education were offered for nursing managers and directors. The percent of managers presenting Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference«s or papers at outside conferences increased from 8.5% in fiscal year 2008 to 27% in fiscal year 2009, and the percent of certified managers increased from 29% to 46% during fiscal year 2009. Using a multi-faceted approach and carefully tracking outcome metrics was key to the program's success.
