Title:
Adaptation and Implementation of AACN's Healthy Work Environment Standards in Academia
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Through participation in the Nurse Faculty Mentored Leadership Development Program, tremendous growth in terms of competence and confidence in leadership capabilities was gained.  Two major avenues of personal leadership growth took place over the 18 month endeavor.  The first was to create a chapter and serve as president of the American Association of Critical Care Nurses in a rural area without access to an existing chapter. The chapter has now been chartered, is active in accomplishing the initial goals of the members and is consistently growing.   The second avenue for personal growth in leadership took place through a project aimed at improving the working environment among nursing faculty.  This project utilized leadership capabilities through working to lead change in the organizational culture among nursing faculty.  The purpose of this project was to explore and improve the working environment among nursing faculty at Northern Michigan University.  The AACN’s Healthy Working Environment Standards were adapted in an effort to create applicability to the academic environment.  This resulted in the following healthy working environment standards; Skilled Communication, True Collaboration, Effective Decision Making, Appropriate Staffing, Meaningful Recognition, and Authentic Leadership.   This project began by examining the current state of the work environment using the AACN’s Healthy Working Environment survey, a visual analog scale, and qualitative questions.  A calendar of events was created in an effort to improve areas of the working environment where faculty saw room for improvement.  The main areas of focus were communication and social interaction.  A post intervention survey was distributed.  Data collection and analysis is ongoing.
