MAGNET MONDAY: Complete the Professional Nursing Workforce Data Survey now! (and win fabulous prizes)
The picture of the nursing workforce at AAMC is coming into view – 281 nurses have completed the Professional Nursing Workforce Data survey in HealthStream.
All nurses who completed the survey to date were included in a drawing this morning. Here are the winners of these FABULOUS prizes:
- Susan Gray from the Emergency Department won a one year membership to the Maryland Nurse’s Association (MNA)
- Selo Musa from the Heart and Vascular Unit won a $10 cafeteria voucher.
- Shelley Esterson from Labor & Delivery won a $20 spa certificate.
- Jessica Walker from the Heart and Vascular Unit won a book titled Strong at the broken places: voices of illness, a chorus of hope
You may need a refresher…. why is this survey important? The first step in the nursing process is Assessment. As a nursing department we need an accurate and current assessment of the nursing expertise at AAMC. We then use this information to plan how to invest our resources to improve our workforce to meet the current and future needs of our patients. We’ll also share this “snapshot” of our nursing team in our Magnet designation document.
In order for a complete a sharp picture, we need everyone to participate by the end of January. Please take five minutes to participate: access HealthSteam via the intranet, log in, then click on “My Learning.” Continue all the way to the end of the survey.
Next round of drawings will be on Monday, January 28, so be sure to complete your survey before then!
