Discussion Question 2: Characteristics of an Effective Team

As the saying goes, “There is no I in the team.” There is another saying, “The whole world is a team.” These two sayings support the fact that everyone in healthcare organizations must work together for the good of patients. There is much in healthcare literature focusing on the role of high-performance teams and their impact on patient quality, patient safety, and healthcare worker satisfaction. One of the greatest “value-added” benefits of high-performance teams is the collaboration and sharing of essential information to enhance quality and patient outcomes. In modern healthcare organizations, effective teams are critical to providing patient and healthcare worker satisfaction.

NSG 6620 Shared Governance Structure and the CNO

NSG 6620 Week 3 Assignment 1 Discussion

Discussion Question 1: Shared Governance Structure and the CNO

During the 1980s, nursing and healthcare were suffering from challenges of an acute nursing shortage, rampant nurse turnover, and issues with nurse retention.In the mid-1980s, shared governance was instituted to incentivize and empower nurses. Shared governance is an innovative organizational model promoting staff control and autonomy over nursing practice in areas that were previously controlled by managers. NSG 6620 Shared Governance Structure and the CNO.

The concept of shared governance may be a challenge to understand because it is not uniformly applied or operationalized and because of the great diversity in shared governance models.Nurses working in organizations with shared governance models are more empowered and have higher levels of satisfaction in their roles.

NSG 6620 Week 3 – Assignment 2

Assignment 2: SWOT Analysis Draft

The CNO constantly needs to evaluate and assess various components of the healthcare organization’s structure, process, and outcomes as they relate to organizational effectiveness in meeting the mission and vision statement.It is relevant to have a method for rapid evaluation and assessment of these components because often, the CNO does not have much time in which to conduct these activities.One method that allows CNOs to effectively and efficiently evaluate and assess healthcare organizations and pinpoint issues is the SWOT analysis.SWOT stands for strengths, weaknesses, outcomes, and threats.The SWOT analysis is easy to administer in order to evaluate the following:

Strengths that are positive and internal

Weaknesses that are negative and internal

Opportunities that are positive and external

Threats that are negative and external

Upon completion of the SWOT analysis, the CNO can set major goals to be achieved and get the organization back on track by linking the SWOT analysis findings to strategic planning.
