Hot Topics for Nurse Leaders: Six Calls to Action

Katherine, a new graduate RN, walks onto the hospital nursing unit fresh out of school and full of expectations of what she will experience as a nurse. She is eager to apply her new skills and learning, only to discover the other nurses on the floor have been there for many years and don’t especially want to spend their time training her. Some of the nurses actually tell her it will take a while to “fit in” with this long-standing group of colleagues. She hears a lot of gossiping between nurses about other nurses, and overhears nurses talking about her in a negative way. Later in the shift, she notices a nurse acting like she might be impaired, but when she asks about it, she is told to “mind her own business.” She also hears a lot of complaining from older nurses about a new computer charting system being implemented.

Gone are the days when nurses spent their shifts perfectly folding bed sheets, giving backrubs, and emptying bedpans. The role of the nurse in the 21st century has evolved and changed drastically from those earlier days. Nurses today walk into their work settings and have to deal with ever-changing technologies, conflict with patients or co-workers, and a variety of situations which require skills they don’t often learn in nursing school. Nurses of today must be able to think and prioritize care that is much more complex, while at the same time making important split-second decisions and acting as leaders and educators.

In this seminar, you will be “called to action” on six of the most critical contemporary nursing situations: Nurse Burnout and Compassion Fatigue, The Addicted Professional, Conflict in the Workplace, Nurse Incivility, Generational Differences in Nurses, and Spirituality in Nursing. You will leave this training feeling engaged and equipped with real solutions to successfully tackle these practice challenges.
