Mid-Level Nurse Leaders' Role-Related Peak and Nadir Experiences

Are you a Nursing Director, Manager or Assistant Manager with a minimum 12-month tenure in your current role?  If so, we would like to invite you to participate in a research study that will define and compare peak (positive) and nadir (negative) experiences, and the short- and long-term consequences of these role ­ related experiences. The study will also explore the mid-level nurse leader's experiences regarding their ability or lack thereof, to function at an effective level in their current role, and will examine how these factors of effective and non-effective role function impact role-related meaning for the nurse leader. The estimated time to complete the one-on-one will range from 30 to 120 minutes. If you are interested, please click here.  Thank you for your consideration.

Leader at the Bedside: Establishing Clinical Staff Nurse Leadership Competencies

A doctoral candidate in the PhD program in the School of Nursing at the University of Texas at Tyler is seeking clinical staff nurse leaders [CSNL] for a  study entitled, Leader at the Bedside:  Establishing Clinical Staff Nurse Leadership Competencies (the CSNL Study).  The purpose of the CSNL study is to establish a set of comprehensive CSNL competencies and their associated knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSAs) from the perspective of the CSNL.  The study will employ a mixed methods design beginning with a survey that will be followed by focus group(s).  It is expected that the set of valid and reliable CSNL competencies from the study will allow for education, training, and objective evaluation of leadership activities performed by the clinical staff nurse. Please contact SFranksMeeks@patriots.uttyler.edu if you are interested in having your organization’s clinical staff nurses  participate in this study or with any questions you may have.
