A Community of Exceptional Nurses
The effect of work environments on nurses’ well-being and job satisfaction is a well-documented and continuing challenge among healthcare institutions. Increasingly, evidence shows that the health of work environments also significantly impacts patient outcomes – making it more critical than ever to create and maintain healthy work environments.
Join healthcare executive, educator, and researcher Beth Ulrich for a discussion of what it means to have a healthy work environment, how work environments impact patient outcomes and how to initiate discussions around creating a healthy work environment. The presentation will review "AACN Standards for Establishing and Sustaining Health Work Environments (HWE)," introduce evidence demonstrating the impact of environment on patients, share high-level findings from a recent work environments survey published in Critical Care Nurse" and offer tools to help start the HWE conversation on your unit.
At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
