Sailing Toward Excellence: Who’s Steering the Boat?
Developing a Culture of Excellence requests all of us to guide the journey. This is not one person accountability, or “you have more accountability than I do” attitude, or “I am just a _____.” We do this together as a strong crew of talent, sea worthy sailors. Discovering and identifying our role on deck or below is essential to this journey. What is our role and how does is compliment the roles of others. Self-discovery is key. Developing and lifting up others is essential. Leadership in shaping culture is everyone's responsibility.

Love’em or Lose’em: Rewards and Recognition on a Shoestring Budget
Whether you are a staff nurse, educator or manager there is a new job out there and we are ALL in it: “Chief Retention Officer.” In today’s healthcare environment everything needs to be done within our power, to not only retain employees, but to motivate them to peak performance.

Decreasing Falls with Injury Through Shared Governance
Eydie Tipton & Kellea Hendrian
Quality and safety practices are vital to ensuring high-quality care. The age of value-based care has encouraged hospitals and health systems to achieve a high quality of care to decrease 30-day hospital readmissions, decrease the length of stay, and reduce complications of care. hared governance is a platform used to provide nurses with decision-making that promotes accountability, quality, and safety of patient care, and teamwork alongside leaders. This quality improvement initiative improved falls with injury through shared governance engagement and multidisciplinary empowerment.
Implementing a Critical Care Consult Nurse
Eydie Tipton & Laura Weigand

Quality Improvement Roadmaps: Leveraging the Unit
Based Council in Outcomes Driven Projects
Managing and engaging clinical nurses in improvement science for unit-based councils (UBC) can be challenging. Providing quality improvement training in the form of Yellow Belt education (Lean/Six Sigma) and leveraging a one-page document that captured the project cycle, goal, current state, data, plan and follow up yielded success. It allowed the clinical nurse to track progress and have awareness of what the UBC was working on and how they might assist.
