The nurse executive of SLMC would like to see a decentralized, flatter structure. This structure will allow frontline staff to make informed decisions and support person-centered healthcare. The nursing staff would be able to take a greater role in the development and execution of the care process, which will encourage them to feel more responsible and accountable for their care.
I see the key element of my vision as incorporating the person-centered nurse framework. With a strong focus on the individual’s needs and preferences as well as their values, this framework puts the patient at the centre of all care. We can make sure that each patient receives the best care possible by incorporating the framework into our organizational structures.
To create a motivating climate and atmosphere that supports a positive work environment, I would use several motivational theories, including Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory.
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs suggests that people have a hierarchy of needs, ranging from basic physiological needs to self-actualization. In order to create an environment that is motivating, I will ensure nursing staff has access to all the support and resources they require to fulfill their safety and basic physiological needs. This includes adequate staffing, equipment and working conditions. In order to help nurses achieve their goals, I encourage professional development and growth.
Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory suggests that job satisfaction is influenced by two sets of factors: hygiene factors, such as salary and working conditions, and motivators, such as recognition and growth opportunities. Both motivators and hygiene are key to creating a positive environment. My goal is to ensure nurses are well compensated and have benefits. I also want them to feel safe and secure. Also, I would reward and recognize nursing staff’s contributions as well as encourage growth and development.
My vision for SLMC’s organizational structure is to make it flatter and more centralized, empowering nursing staff to provide person-centered care. To create a motivating climate and atmosphere, I would use motivational theories such as Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory to ensure that nursing staff have access to the resources, support, and recognition they need to deliver high-quality care and thrive in their roles.
