“The RN Satisfaction Survey: No Magic Mirrors Needed” by Cathaleen Ley, PhD, APRN, BC
Mirror, mirror on the wall… a little honest self-reflection is good for all of us. It helps us to see where we are excelling and where we may need to improve. Here at AAMC, we are able to do just that during the upcoming R.N. Satisfaction Survey. We take the results very seriously, and we should.
After all, the information this survey will provide is a major force behind our Nursing Strategic Plan, our roadmap to an excellent nurse practice environment. The R.N. Satisfaction Survey is about finding out how you, our nurses, perceive the practice environment in which you work.
If we didn’t take the results so seriously we wouldn’t invest time and resources into trying to get you to take the survey—and we’d want to hear only the good stuff. Like Snow White’s stepmother, we’d want our magic mirror to say, “Anne Arundel Medical Center…you are the fairest of them all.”
But we don’t. We value your input and want you to participate with honest responses. Please help us build an excellent nurse practice environment at AAMC by taking the R.N. Satisfaction Survey.
It’s easy! You can access the R.N. Survey here, 24/7, from May 3-May 24. The log in code will be emailed to you.
Eligible R.N.s are full or part-time, regardless of job title, who spend at least 50% of their time in direct patient care, and have been employed a minimum of 3 months on the unit (Float pool nurses employed by AAHS are eligible; agency or contract nurses are not eligible).
