SMART Goal 1: Communication and Relationship Building
I will identify my role of becoming a more effective charge nurse. I will have
better improved communication and decreased conflicts amongst the RN’s and
Cna’s. I will practice using daily task/goal sheets for CNA’s. This will eliminate
misunderstanding for the cnas to what is expected of them for the day.
I will measure my success by obtaining feedback from the other Nurses to
monitor if tasks are being followed through with and completed, reevaluate what
needs to be improved on. This tool will measure the effectiveness of my daily
task/goal sheet and will assist in Nurse/CNA communication.
I will seek journal articles and websites to education myself with literature
search using the EBSCO, CINAHL, and Goggle Scholar on effective conflict
resolution and better daily communication. I will review joint commission and
Magnet to assist my unit’s Magnet journey undertaking.
I currently work on the Acute Pediatrics floor doing bedside nursing. I am
looking to become a Nurse educator either with hospital or another pediatric
hospital. I will become more comfortable and competent in a leadership position
by educating myself in delegation and daily communication. I will serve as a
resource for newer nurses to the unit.
T: time bound
I will receive an over 50% compliance with the new daily task/goal sheet for
nurse support team in the next 15 days and 100% compliance in 30 days.
