Abstract:
Session presented on Monday, September 19, 2016: Master?s level nurses will assume leadership positions that require the development of collaborative teams to meet quality outcomes in clinical and academic settings.� Some of the leadership skills essential to team building include communication, collaboration, negotiation, and coordination (American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN), 2011).� A key component to building an effective team includes employing qualified personnel by recruiting the most appropriate candidate for the position.� Yet, often potential employees are hired because of the need to rapidly fill an empty position (Roussel, 2013).� Cottrell?s leadership principles suggest that leaders should ?hire tough? to manage easy and avoid potential problems even if this process requires more time (Cottrell, 2002).� Although faculty serve on search committees they may lack experience recruiting appropriate personnel or assisting with this decision making process.� This presentation will describe a learning activity that was implemented in a graduate nursing leadership course to address effective skills for hiring.� Students were given case scenarios of potential candidates and asked to rank them based on the information provided.� The students served on fictitious search committees and worked in groups to determine the best candidates for the positions.� Students identified strengths and weaknesses for each candidate and used a variety of skills including communication, collaboration, negotiation, and decision making skills to reach consensus on ranking the candidates.� Each group shared their rankings with the entire class and further discussed the candidates to reach final agreement.� An overview of the learning activity, how it assisted students to understand principles of effective recruitment and hiring will be discussed in the presentation.� The presentation will also describe how the activity promoted leadership skills necessary to build collaborative teams and reach consensus.� American Association of Colleges of Nursing (2011).� The essentials of master's education in nursing.� Author. Cottrell, D.� (2002).� Monday morning leadership.� Dallas, TX: Cornerstone Leadership Institute.
