1. Sohal, Lakhbir. Implementing a Nursing Professional Model to Improve Staff Nurse Engagement and Teamwork.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2018, University of San Francisco

Problem: Several studies have examined the role of the nurse and reveal that job-related stress, defined as an overload of high acuity patients, physical and emotional demands of the job, and lack of autonomy, may impact engagement and teamwork (Garrosa et al., 2010). Evidence suggests a direct correlation between high levels of staff engagement and teamwork improves quality outcomes for the organization. Therefore, it is imperative that we measure staff engagement and teamwork on our nursing units to ensure that quality indicators are met and that as an organization we provide safe patient care. Context: The purpose of this Doctor of Nursing Program (DNP) evidence-based change of practice project was to apply the elements of a professional practice model on a 48-bed medical-surgical-telemetry unit at a medium sized (225 licensed beds) tertiary medical center to measure the effect on nurse engagement and teamwork. The main stakeholders in this project were nursing administration, the unit management team, and staff nurses working on the interventional unit. The unit was chosen due to several indicators: decline in staff morale, lack of perceived teamwork amongst the staff, and the exodus of key staff members due to the demands of the role. Interventions: Using a pre-test, post-test design, nursing staff on the telemetry unit were enculturated with a professional practice model (known as the Voice of Nursing [VON]) along with its six core values and defined lean principles. Interventions consisted of a workshop, post workshop meetings, development of a visual board, and enhancement of an existing unit-based team known as Creating Lasting Change (CLC) to drive change on the unit. Measures: Measures chosen to study the intervention’s processes and outcomes targeted: a) nurse knowledge regarding the VON professional practice model, b) staff engagement, c) intent to stay with the organization, d) culture of teamwork, and e) improvement in the quality metric of patient falls. Results:The findings after implementing a professional practice model compared to pre-study findings are as follows: Nurses had a clearer understanding of the professional practice model (increased by 33%) Improved engagement on the interventional unit (improved by 4%) Intent to stay within the organization (increased by 11%) An improved culture of teamwork (improved by 9%) Decreased falls from a total of 4 to zero during the last three months of the project (June-August 2018) Conclusion: The purpose of implementing and enculturating the elements of a professional practice model demonstrated the intent to get to the hearts and minds of nurses and create an environment in which nurses are engaged, and a culture of teamwork exists. An engaged work force helps encapsulate a safe, efficient, and effective environment… Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Robin Buccheri, PhD, RN, NP, FAAN, Dr. Marjorie Barter, EdD, RN, CNL, CENP.

2. Garcia-Cisneros, Alicia. Applying the Model of Interrelationship Environments and Outcomes to Simulation for Nurse Leaders to Enhance the Professional Practice Work Environment: Creating a Mile One Nurse Leadership Simulation Toolkit.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2019, University of San Francisco

In nursing leadership, defining a culture of accountability is pivotal to ensure patient safety and achieve optimal patient outcomes. Nurse leaders play a significant role in transforming the professional environment, work culture, and professional behavior to deliver the highest-quality patient care. Often, nurse leaders are challenged in developing workplace environments and structures that encourage professional autonomy, advocacy, and culture climates as well as in motivating nursing staff to feel engaged. Despite an abundance of evidence underscoring the importance of staff engagement, a Gallup study revealed that only 30% of U.S. employees and 13% of employees worldwide are engaged in their work, while 26% are considered actively disengaged (Berson, 2015; Beck & Harter, 2015). Nurse engagement degenerates in a stagnant environment, posing a major threat to nurses themselves, patients, and the health care organization. Literature supports the notion that ineffective leader–follower exchange, among other high stressors, in an organization increases nurse burnout (Crawford & Daniels, 2014). Nurse leaders heavily influence subordinate productivity and professional culture engagement through the development of valuable and exemplary leadership practices that target nurse staff empowerment, transformational culture climate, and executive engagement. Therefore, a leadership toolkit based on the Mile One framework was developed over 18 months with the purpose of improving leadership influence over professional practice and cultural environments and reducing low employee engagement levels. This toolkit was derived from Dr. Jeffrey Adams’ Model of Interrelationship of Leadership, Environments, and Outcomes for Nurse Executives and was created for experienced nurse leaders and new aspiring nurse leaders. Comparison of pre- and post-implementation data revealed a significant change in perceived influence and the acquisition of new-found knowledge about the Mile One leadership framework. Additionally, cost savings are associated with the decrease of nurse leader turnover when hospital organizations offer developmental strategies for new or aspiring nurse leaders. Successful implementation of the Mile One Leadership Simulation Toolkit highlights the critical role nurse leaders assume in improving empowerment and staff engagement while fostering a high-performing environment and team capable of achieving superior patient care outcomes.
