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

Writing for Publication: Keys to Success
Sharing your knowledge of evidence-based practices and/or positive outcomes is an excellent way to contribute to the field of rehabilitation nursing. Publishing that knowledge can take it a step further and reach more nurses who will then benefit from your knowledge and experience. Elaine Tilka Miller, DNS RN CRRN FAAN, Editor of Rehabilitation Nursing, has created a workshop that will:
- describe the essential components in the development of a manuscript
- review strategies that help facilitate the writing process
- identify resources to aid you in a successful outcome.
Manuscript writing for a journal or trade publication is an attainable goal when the steps are broken down into achievable tasks. Take that next step in your professional development and become a published author. Miller will cover everything from getting started, planning, writing, and maintaining the momentum to help you create a finished product. Helpful resources are also included.
