Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose is to describe positive outcomes associated with direct care nurses using a shared leadership process to select new nurse managers. Background: Professional practice models which enhance nurse decisional involvement are empirically associated with better outcomes. A shared leadership model provides direct care nurses with opportunities to take an active role in decision making with accountability for the outcomes of their decisions. Innovative Practice: In 2005, the resignation of a nurse manager prompted direct care nurses to request input into the selection of their new nurse leader. Breaking with prior practice and using transformational leadership, the Chief Nursing Officer empowered the nurses to select from among themselves a search committee. Using ANA Scope and Standards for Nurse Administrators (2002), the CNO met with the nurses to discuss principles of shared leadership and the important role of nurse managers in todays complex healthcare environment. A Staff Development Educator met with the nurses to discuss behavioral interviewing techniques. The candidate selected by the search committee was appointed as the new nurse manager. Outcomes: A shared leadership process has been utilized by direct care nurses to select eight new nurse managers over the past four years. NDNQI Nurse Satisfaction data indicates improvements in RN satisfaction with management. Other positive outcomes include significant decreases in RN vacancy and turnover rates. Implications: Direct care nurses must be impowered to participate in decision making, especially in areas heretofore hierarchical in nature. In order to achieve positive outcomes nurses need mentoring by visionary nurse leaders. Reference: Application Manual Magnet Recognition Program ANCC, 2008.
