Abstract:
The CNO as transformational leader identifies and communicates vision and values, enabling nurses from all settings and roles to participate in decision-making groups. Input from direct-care nurses helps establish baselines to measure and track progress over time in order to improve the work environment and patient care outcomes. Complexity compression (CC) refers to what nurses experience when they are expected to assume additional, unplanned responsibilities while simultaneously conducting their existing, multiple responsibilities, without extra time or resources. The measures of CC and healthy work environment standards (HWES) provide data that the CNO can share with nurses in decision-making groups who in turn can create innovations to improve the work environment; patient outcomes of quality and safety; and the cognitive complexity of the work of nursing. The survey instrument assessed CC indicators and the influence of HWES for both the nursing unit and the organization with the ability to analyze individual units and organizations. Interventions and innovations based on the findings and staff nurse recommendations will be reported and discussed. Characteristics of transformational leaders and actions taken by the CNO participants as transformational leaders will be discussed. Differences in approach between the staff and CNO will be examined, focusing on the impact actions have on strategic priority setting. This national multi-center study has completed data collection in two systems (6 hospitals) with a third organization scheduled. Differences between Magnet, Magnet journey and no Magnet activity at the organizations will be reported as it relates to the CNO as transformational leader.
