Abstract:
As a result of the Nursing Divisions 2007 strategic planning retreat, the CNO of this community hospital embarked on a comprehensive succession planning process to ensure continuous nursing leadership presence. Using a model adapted by Bolton and Roy (2004), a step-by-step process was developed and implemented. Key components include: identification of key positions requiring specialized knowledge, skills and experience; identification of potential candidates for succession; development and support for potential candidates interested in leadership advancement; identification of opportunities for candidates to serve in leadership roles; appoint successors; and allocation of resources to support model. Specific effective strategies for each component will be presented. Since the model was implemented, four candidates have advanced to leadership positions and two candidates have advanced to interim leadership roles. A key to this succession planning models success is the appropriate identification of direct care staff nurses with demonstrated leadership qualities to serve in the off-shift supervisory role. The value of this role in determining key leadership capabilities will be reviewed. Further, this model was adapted to develop bench strength in the Nursing Division relative to key hospital incident command roles to ensure effective leadership presence in the event of a disaster. A detailed discussion of the success of this model at three levels will be presented: direct care staff nurse to off-shift supervisory role; charge nurse to assistant clinical manager role; and off-shift supervisor to interim director role. Finally, an innovative adaptation of the model for key hospital incident command roles will be described.
