I never get to see or hear about one. Work duties just keeps piling on, nursing to patient ratios in ICU no longer take acuity into consideration and nurses still make less than mechanics, carpenters and plumbers.

I’m sure they exist. If they’re owned by Prospect Medical holdings I can assure you the answer is no.

May 7th, 2024

NO!!!

No. They are groomed by corporate and focus on the bottom line

To your question you first must understand the administration hiring job description towards nursing leadership.
Some of the key responsibilities of a nurse leader include: Staying up to date on the latest healthcare research. Promoting and protecting patient health and safety. Working to shorten the average length of patient hospital stays and reduce readmission rates. Aiming to reduce healthcare costs by improving efficiency.

Nursing managers are responsible for managing day-to-day operations in nursing departments and supervising department staff. Leaders typically supervise nursing teams and ensure the overall success of the unit or hospital as a whole.

Their obligation is to administration first to represents creating plans and actions to achieve the objectives of the company. Management is the process of implementing these plans to achieve the final goal. Administrative functions are legislative in nature, whereas managerial functions are executive in nature.

The bottom line and final goal is company and money so NO in the true sense. Sadly it is not nurse and patient first, this is why you see the poor state nursing is in and why there is such a mask exodus from bedside nursing.

I am sure there must be but I have never worked for one in 27 years of nursing

May 7th, 2024

No and even if they tried they are bounded by HR or Employee Relations.

May 7th, 2024

No, nurses are more likely to eat their own than to band together and advocate for one another. From witnessing and being on the receiving end of this behavior for years, I am now a supervisor and advocate for my nurses like I wish someone did for me. Happy nurses that feel valued and appreciated lead to happier patients, its a no brainer!
