Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The CNS and Nurse Manager of a patient care unit must work closely together to advocate a positive culture of growth, teamwork and excellence. The synergy between the leaders of a unit sets the stage for the nurse's personal and professional growth and development. The CNS and Nurse Manager work together to promote quality nursing leadership, an environment of autonomy and shared decision-making. Since the implementation of these roles, nurse turnover on the unit has decreased from 7 RNs to 2 RNs; nurse vacancy has remained stable despite a 25% increase in RN FTEs, and length of employment has remained stable even with the consistent hiring of new graduate nurses. Nurse certification has increased by 200% since initiation of certification classes, and a financial commitment by the hospital. Nurse satisfaction with teamwork has moved into the 78th percentile. Implementing innovative quality improvement initiatives and developing an environment in which high quality care can be provided has improved patient satisfaction, and the unit is consistently ranked as good or very good on the Press-Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. The CNS / Nurse Manager team continues to mentor the staff nurses in evidence-based practice and research. An evidence-based review conducted in 2005 led to innovative patient teaching strategies, and developed the nurses as teachers, and enhanced the image of nursing. The synergy exhibited by the CNS and Nurse Manager has led to excellence in care and evidence-based outcomes as well as increased nursing job satisfaction and development. References: 1.
