Congratulations, you’re engaged! You feel connected, supported, appreciated, and heard—happy to put your energy into a relationship that promises positive returns. Shouldn’t that be how nurses feel at work? So often, though, they say they feel the opposite.
Despite its noble intentions, the Triple Aim of healthcare may be causing more pain than intended, at least according to a study in the Annals of Family Medicine. And it’s no surprise that nurses and nurse managers are feeling the sting too.
As healthcare continues to evolve, nowhere is the push and pull situation–the need to improve care quality and patient satisfaction on one hand and reduce costs on the other–more acute than in nursing. And nurse managers find themselves right in the middle.
Today we’re excited to announce two powerful new features for NurseGrid Manager. We’re now surfacing more actionable team and department updates and streamlining schedule distribution and communication–and we think everybody will be pretty happy about it.
As staff nurses and nursing leaders, you spend so much time focusing on others at work–whether it’s patients, patients’ families, or staff in your charge–that your own wellbeing can too often be neglected.
At NurseGrid, we want to help you take back time so you can focus on what really matters at work and in life. Nurses are pretty social people; it’s part of what makes them interested and successful in a career focused on delivering excellent care to their patients.
