Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Central Baptist Hospital is a relationship-centered organization focused on service excellence. Formal and informal leadership is crucial to sustaining a culture of clinical excellence and empowerment to foster and support a shared governance environment. Seven years ago this hospital created the Evolving Leaders program as a key strategy to ensure support for current and emerging leaders and to develop knowledge and competencies needed for nurses to lead in the modern clinical environment. The program itself has evolved as the steering team evaluated and redesigned a curriculum based on organizational needs, strategic priorities and learner feedback. Required courses at each level of learning reflect the organizations key strategic priorities and mission-critical skills. Critical to the success of the program has been the establishment of mentor/protg relationships at the upper curriculum levels. These relationships have provided opportunities for learning, skill practice and direct feedback that the classroom cannot provide. Mentors are matched with learners based on knowledge, skill and the protgs developmental goals, often matching nurses with mentors outside of nursing practice. This model of leadership development builds a culture of commitment and ensures a steady supply of highly trained and motivated nurse leaders, while assuring the provision of uninterrupted, efficient, and caring leadership for employees. Within the last three years, 75% of nurses who have participated in the Evolving Leaders program have been promoted to formal nurse manager and nurse extender positions, with less than a 4% vacancy rate in nursing and less than 3% vacancy rate for the facility overall.
