ARN March Webinar

What Engages Rehabilitation Nurses:  Creating a Satisfying Work-Life Balance

Wednesday, March 12, 2014
2:00-3:15 pm EST

Register online or by calling 800.229.7530

In a recent poll of ARN members, two thirds reported having issues with work-life balance and staff nurse engagement. This webinar will explore some of the myths and realities behind this issue and provide practical strategies and approaches to increase engagement and establish a better balance. Nurse engagement has been shown to have a direct impact on quality outcomes, and evidence from the literature related to nurse engagement will be analyzed from the perspectives of individual engagement, work-group engagement, magnet principles, and empowerment.  The variables that can predict nursing engagement, both from the individual nurse and work-group perspectives, will be presented, as well as strategies for creating an optimum work-life balance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Differentiate myths from reality related to job stress and job satisfaction
  • Identify the source of stress and frustration for the staff nurse within the work environment
  • Evaluate the staff nurse role in terms of empowerment, engagement, and leadership
  • Analyze strategies for increasing staff nurse engagement

Competency Model Feedback Deadline

For the past several months, a team of rehabilitation nursing experts has been creating a comprehensive competency model for rehabilitation nursing. Identified as a critical need in ARN’s Strategic Plan, the model serves to identify the core competencies critical to the professional role of a rehabilitation nurse. While the skilled application of specific nursing interventions is always important, the model also seeks to define the higher-order characteristics of a professional rehabilitation nurse as a leader, educator, promoter of successful living, and interprofessional team member.

The draft model is now ready for member review and comment. ARN wants your feedback! The member review and comment period will end on Friday, March 21, 2014.

Click here to download the draft model.
