Abstract:
Poster presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: Nurses' satisfaction with their role in the nursing profession is a significant concern for nurse leaders. The nursing shortage has pushed recruitment and retention of qualified nurses to a pivotal point in the delivery of quality care. The purpose of the presentation is to emphasize the multifaceted approach used to improve nurse job satisfaction at this 339 bed acute care facility The project spanned over three years utilizing NDNQI data from 2006- 2009, with other data sources. This presentation is relevant for nurse leaders and educators who are interested in exploring initiatives that effectively use multiple data sources for application to their own institutions. The information highlights how data drove the focus group project to generate more specific findings. Integrating the focus group findings and the quantitative data led to implementing interventions directed toward work environment, communication, job enjoyment and RN job plans. Interventions included changes in communication with colleagues and leadership as well as organizational initiatives. The outcomes included improved scores in work environment (decision making, autonomy), and job enjoyment scores. There was an increase in RNs reporting plans to stay on the same unit as well. A decrease in RN turnover occurred, indicating improved RN work satisfaction and retention. Participants will learn the steps of developing alternative ways to apply information from trending data. This project has significant implications for nurse leaders to provide a variety of methods to gather, analyze and utilize valuable information to improve quality nursing practice.
