1. Straw, Christen. Frontline Focus: A Nurse Manager's Employee Engagement Toolkit.

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

Abstract Average hospital turnover rates in the US reached 18.2% in 2017. Turnover rates for registered nurses (RNs) were also at an all-time high of 16.8%. RN turnover can cost up to 61,100 per nurse resulting in the average hospital loss of 5.7 million per year (NSI, 2018). Employee engagement and job satisfaction levels are predictors of nursing turnover and patient outcomes and should be a top priority for nurse leaders. A disengaged workforce not only affects team morale and organizational spending, but it also impacts the quality of patient care. Multiple studies suggest that employee engagement is the number one variable linked to patient mortality (Kruse, 2015; Zwillinger & Huster, 2017). Therefore, a Nurse Manager Employee Engagement Toolkit (NMEET) was created and implemented over 18 months with the intent to mitigate low engagement levels, high rates, and unsustainable spending within an urban, academic organization. Comparison of pre- and post-implementation data revealed significant improvements in employee engagement and team morale leading to a decrease in departmental turnover by 11.5%. Additionally, substantial cost savings are associated with increasing the size of the float pool as a safe staffing strategy to decrease the use of overtime and contract RNs. Successful implementation of the NMEET highlights the critical role nurse managers play in improving staff engagement through investing and empowering frontline staff while simultaneously creating a work environment that fosters high performing teams capable of achieving superior patient outcomes. Keywords: engagement, turnover, job satisfaction, toolkit, nurse manager, float pool Advisors/Committee Members: Dr. Catherine Coleman, Rev. Timothy Godfrey.

2. Javed, Priscilla. Transforming Self and Systems through Implementation of a Caring Coach Leader Program.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2016, University of San Francisco

Assistant nurse managers and nurse managers, often referred to as middle managers, have a direct impact on daily hospital operations, clinical work environments, delivery of high quality safe patient care, and patient outcomes. The stressful demands of this role have caused turnover rates to soar above the national average on some of the inpatient hospital units. Instability of nursing management oversight negatively effects staff job satisfaction and delivery of high quality safe patient care. In reviewing the organizations initial orientation program for transitioning middle managers into their new role, it was missing the supportive guidance of a coach. A Caring Coach Leader program was developed based on the foundation of transformational and caring leadership attributes aligned to the organizations theory-based culture. Transformational caring leadership attributes positively influence followers’ engagement, builds trust relationships, and supports improvement of patient outcomes. Combined voluntary turnover rates of the assistant nurse managers and nurse managers, changes in caring attributes of program participants, and overall program appraisal were evaluated. Advisors/Committee Members: Mary Bittner, DNP, MPA, RN, CENP, Robin Buccheri, PhD, NP, RN, FAACN.

Subjects/Keywords: nurse manager orientation; nurse manager turnover; preceptor programs for nurse managers; transformational leadership; quality and patient care outcomes; Nursing; Nursing Administration

3. Bigby, Elizabeth S. Building a Framework for Professional Nursing Practice Across the Continuum of Care.

Degree: DNP, Nursing, 2015, University of San Francisco

Nursing professional practice models are designed to unite and align nurses under one vision, set of values, and a professional practice model. The goal of this project was to implement and enculturate a professional practice model of nursing with assistant nurse managers and leaders across the continuum of care at an urban medical center and associated ambulatory medical offices. Staff engagement has been shown to improve satisfaction and decrease turnover and implementation and enculturation of a professional practice model improves engagement. The target population was nurse managers and leaders as they needed to embrace professional practice before the project was spread to frontline nursing staff. The interventions planned and implemented by the project workgroups resulted in decreased nurse manager and leader turnover and increased engagement. Uniting and aligning nurses under one vision, set of values, and professional practice model across the continuum of care enables the organization to elevate nursing practice, ultimately improving staff satisfaction and patient outcomes. This strategy also ensures that regardless of where members enter the health system, they will know that they have been cared for by a nurse from this health system. Advisors/Committee Members: Brian Budds, Esq, Dr. Juli Maxworthy, Dr. Christine Lima.

Subjects/Keywords: nursing practice; professional practice model; nurse engagement; nurse empowerment; union environment; staff satisfaction; nurse manager turnover; Health and Medical Administration; Nursing Administration
