In a recent poll of ARN members, two thirds reported having issues with work-life balance and staff nurse engagement. This endured webinar explores some of the myths and realities behind this issue and provides 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 is 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, are 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

Target Audience

This activity is designed for nurses, nurse managers, educators, PPS coordinators, case managers, and intake nurses.
