Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: When desired plans come together, it is a beautiful thing. When unplanned change occurs, havoc can ensue. The nurse manager role is pivotal in assisting a unit to flourish in the midst of unexpected changes. A successful strategy includes recognizing and developing talent of future leaders. Staff nurses can be utilized to stabilize a unit and succession planning can help spark the interest for future leadership. Nursing executives needed to provide short term leadership to a unit whose manager was leaving. Arrangements were made to increase the responsibility of the covering manager. Three directives were given for the new area: support the staff, increase patient satisfaction, and do not change any processes. Challenges were documented and an action plan was presented. Key individuals were identified to assist with the transition process and leadership capabilities assessed. Positive benefits noted for staff and manager included: Expansion of knowledge base; Increased physician and nursing patient satisfaction scores; Empowerment for staff lead initiatives; Increased clinical nurse presence in decision-making activities; Formation of mentoring relationships. As a result, change did occur, processes were revised and staff thrived. Each nursing unit achieved or maintained a low nursing vacancy rate. New leaders were identified and further career development was encouraged for growth. When future leaders were recognized and given the tools and support to succeed, both units thrived in the face of change and came through stronger than before.
