Wolters Kluwer, Health has released a new report that presents strategic imperatives for nurse executives in a post-COVID-19 world. “Nurse Executives: Driving Change in the Era of COVID-19,” explores how nurse leaders are in a unique position to embrace new opportunities and challenges in a post pandemic reality that can shape longer-term strategies to strengthen the profession.
The seven strategic imperatives for nurse executives are underscored by nurse survey data (conducted prior to the pandemic) that analyzes responses of US nurse executives to determine their priorities and preparedness for responding to the needs of nurses, patients, and the community, as well as the tools and resources needed to steer their organisations into the future. The imperatives focus on areas that will have the most impact on the future of nursing.
Many of the focus areas identified in the survey are predicted to grow in importance as nurse leaders build on the momentum established during the pandemic and transition rapid changes to permanent ways of operating.
The survey findings are based on responses from 352 nurses, 14% of which identify as chief nursing officers and nurse executives. The data is the third installment of the Mending Healthcare in America series produced by Wolters Kluwer. The previous installment of the Mending Healthcare in America series, ‘Next-Generation Nurses: Empowered + Engaged,’ explored the differences in attitudes and mindsets of nurses practicing less than 10 years compared to their more experienced counterparts.
