Massachusetts General Hospital, long esteemed for its rigorous science and technical excellence, takes time each day for something seemingly unscientific: telling stories. Why?
Nurses, who are exposed each day to patient trauma, end-of-life situations, and the raw grief of partners, parents, and families, may experience loss more personally than other healthcare professionals.
This evidenced-based course will play a crucial role in the charge nurse/frontline leaders role in the organization.
Achievement is the culture in which we are immersed, the air we breathe.
Research indicates that nurses who work nights on a regular basis are at higher risk for health problems including weight gain, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease than their day-shift peers.
The nurse’s voice is essential and critical to the governance of healthcare organizations. Nurses, after all, represent the largest professional group in healthcare, account for the greatest human resources expense, and-most importantly-are closest to patients and their families, physicians, and the community.
