“People are Leaving in Droves” - Strategies to Improve Nurse Retentio

Nursing shortages and financial consequences of nursing turnover compromise both short-term and long-term patient care. The increasingly diverse healthcare workforce encompasses generations including veteran, baby boomer, generation X, millennials, and generation Z. There is limited research linking multigenerational nurses’ emotional intelligence, job satisfaction, and retention. The current study addresses this gap.

Predictive Nature of Generational Identity, Educational Level, and Years of Experience upon a Registered Nurse’s Decision-Making

Today there are four generations of nurses working collaboratively in healthcare organizations, and each individual nurse has a unique perspective with potential to influence how they act and respond to work by the decisions they make. Nurse decisions influence the nurse’s work and patient care outcomes however there is inadequate understanding as to how a nurse’s generational identity, level of nursing education, and years of experience as a nurse impacts the nursing decision making process.

ARC - Leadership: A New Conceptual Model

Operationalizing these initiatives requires leaders capable of aligning individual, organizational, and societal values (Meglino, Ravlin, & Adkins, 1992; Schein, 1985; Verplanken, 2004).   A new theory of leadership is needed.  ARC leadership is proposed as a model and necessitated by a lack of comprehensive, win-win models of leadership accounting for success, prosperity, and actualization for both followers and leaders.

SMARTNotebook

Student engagement is important to their academic success and research shows that Interactive White Boards (IWBs) are a technological tool that can improve elementary and secondary student engagement. (Mata, Lazar, & Lazar, 2016; Yang, Wang, & Chiu, 2014). IWB’s can enhance interactivity in the classroom and invite rich discussion (Murcia, 2014, p. 86), making them a powerful andragogical teaching method.

STEM Certification in Georgia Schools

A STEM Certification process was established in 2012 in Georgia by the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) as part of an effort to reform public school STEM education. As Georgia schools become STEM certified it will be helpful to understand how the certification processes influence achievement in math and science as well as English language arts and social studies. The increase in demand for college and career ready students has driven the need for education reform to ensure K-12 schools can support student learning across all content areas and grade levels.
