For Facility Nurses
Nursing is the largest sector of all healthcare professions and has the greatest impact on patient outcomes. The nursing role is very complex and includes many responsibilities such as: medication administration and management, performing physical assessments, facilitating patient admissions, transfers & discharges, prioritizing, critically thinking, delegating, mentoring subordinates, and utilizing interdisciplinary collaboration. This dynamic role requires significant interpersonal and professional skills which many nurses feel they were not appropriately trained for.
“The LPN/LVN workforce has not been strategically addressed for the 21st-century transformed healthcare system. This lack of focus not only affects the quality and safety of patient outcomes, it may lead to an unintended consequence; a significant void in the health care provider continuum, particularly among older adults and other population clusters that need long-term, community-based chronic care.”
– (National League for Nursing, 2014).
At IMMPACT we believe nurses should have the tools, training, guidance and support to effectively perform their job. For this reason, IMMPACT has developed educational and mentorship programs to support the professional development of nurses. This investment in nurses helps to enhance the quality of care for patients, improve self-efficacy, reduce turn-over, improve job satisfaction and instill a personal pride in the nurses work.
