Description

The initial goal and purpose of this symposium was to develop a structured leadership class to prepare support charge nurses for the challenges they face in today's healthcare environment. Using a transformational leadership framework aligned with the Professional Practice Model (PPM): The Compass, a content outline was developed for the charge nurse's role. The focus was based on the charge nurse's role using the following components: autonomy, accountability, critical thinking, crucial conversations, innovation, productivity, coaching and mentoring, healthy work environment principles and shared governance. This would ultimately optimize the Neuroscience/Spine Unit and Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit charge nurse's professional function.
