Title:
NURSE MANAGER TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP PRACTICES AND PATIENT OUTCOMES
Abstract:
Purposes/Aims: The purpose of this research is to examine the relationships among nurse manager transformational leadership practices, patient outcomes and hospital types (Magnet versus non-Magnet). This study will identify the relationship of existing self-assessed transformational leadership practices and patient outcomes; differences in leadership behaviors of nurse managers working in Magnet and non-Magnet hospitals; relationship of transformational leadership practices and education, experience, ethnicity, and age. Significance/Background: In 2004 the Institute Of Medicine called for healthcare leaders to embrace and adopt transformational leadership practices to promote quality of care and favorable patient outcomes.  The healthcare environment continues to struggle with complex patients, decreased reimbursements, and poor team collaboration.  Nurse managers are accountable for 24-hour operations of their departments and should explore their transformational leadership behaviors and influence on patient outcomes.  There is also literature that supports hospitals achieving Magnet designation have better patient outcomes.  Each of these constructs, Magnet-designation, patient outcomes, and nurse manager transformational leadership practices, are being explored to help determine if there are significant correlations to support changes in our healthcare environments. Design: A correlational study will examine relationships between self-reported transformational leadership practices of ACNL member nurse managers and CALNOC reported patient outcomes by hospital types (Magnet and Non-Magnet Designated). Methods: The study will be conducted using a purposive sample from the Association of California Nurse Leaders (ACNL) database.  ACNL nurse manager members working at Magnet and Non-Magnet hospitals in California will be included as participants.  The participants will include California nurse managers, defined as those with 24-hour accountability for one or more departments.  The independent variables of the study will include hospital type (Magnet vs. non-Magnet), transformational leadership practices: modeling, inspiring, enabling, encouraging, and challenging; Magnet-designation.  The measurement tools utilized for this study will include the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) and a demographic questionnaire.  The nurse manager will complete the LPI-self assessment and the demographic questionnaire using a paper and pencil format.  The data collection will be completed in two phases.  During the first phase the LPI and demographic information from the participants will identify the type of hospital and department.  During the second phase, the participant hospital and departments will be submitted to CALNOC (Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes) for patient data matching.  Appropriate protocol will be followed, including USD IRB approval and proposal submission to CALNOC.  CALNOC will obtain appropriate hospital authorization to release data, and prepare data for purposes of statistical data analysis for research purposes.
