Abstract:
Podium presentation, ANCC National Magnet Conference: The nursing literature demonstrates that the effectiveness of the nursing practice environment is critical to nursing satisfaction, nursing retention and patient outcomes. The purpose of this presentation is to describe how a community hospital developed and implemented a variety of evidenced based strategies to improve its scores on the NDNQI RN Survey to out perform the magnet means. The organization was able to obtain a 94% participation rate on the 2009 RN Survey as compared to a national participation rate of 81%. The organization moved Job Enjoyment Scale T-Scores from the moderate range with a score of 58.8 to the high range with a score of 64.10 and significantly improved their results on the five subscales of the Practice Environment Scale. These results were achieved over the period of one year and provides a best practice example achievable at other organizations. Background: When healthcare organizations struggle with a weak economy and reimbursement changes, history demonstrates that the quality of the nursing practice environment can be threatened. It is the role of nursing leadership to advocate and provide for the structures, systems and resources necessary to support a professional practice model. Topics covered during the presentation include: Leadership strategies for engaging front-line staff in improving the practice environment Responding to caregiver stress in a challenging economic and social climate Utilizing survey results, acuity data, and the literature for acquiring additional nursing positions mid-year in the budget cycle Methods for increasing NDNQI RN survey participation rates
