Abstract:
Poster Presentation: During Town Hall Meetings with our CNO and focus groups with Human Resources, staff nurses and leaders overwhelmingly expressed the need for a new performance appraisal tool for staff nurses. Our goal was to create a streamlined, clinically focused, user-friendly and professional performance management tool, which requires staff to partner with their supervisors. The task force began their work by evaluating numerous appraisal tools from across the country, conducting marathon work sessions, selecting a model to base the tool upon - the ANA standards and the Forces of Magnetism, creating a confidential peer-feedback tool, gathering feedback from staff nurses/managers/directors, partnering with Human Resources and an outside consulting firm to ensure alignment with the performance management process for our organization. Once the tool was finalized multiple in-services were held for leaders and staff. A video was created to introduce the tool to remaining staff and to future employees. With the new process staff nurses meet frequently with leaders to reach agreement on performance objectives and their developmental plan and leave their planning sessions with clear understandings of the expectations for their evaluation. Multiple methods of evaluation are utilized including peer feedback. There is ongoing documentation of performance. Staff nurses are responsible for seeking out career growth opportunities. Staff nurses schedule mid-year and annual evaluations with their supervisors and collaborate with their supervisor to document evidence of performance. The new process facilitates staff nurse satisfaction, encourages professionalism, engages the staff nurse and maintains alignment with the performance management processes of our organization.
