Leadership insights for nurses

Making the shift from the bedside to nurse manager or nurse leader is one of the biggest challenges that nurses face.  Our guest for this episode is well versed on this issue because her current role is all about creating professional development programs for nurses. Crystal Lawson is the Education Director at the American Organization for Nursing Leadership, overseeing their fellowships for nurse managers and directors.  In this conversation, Crystal lets Dr. Dan pepper her with questions on everything from how new nurse leaders can settle into their roles, the difference between accountability and availability, and tips on budgeting, time management and boundary setting. She also shares some great tips for listeners who are interested in applying for one of the AONL’s fellowships.  Links to recommended reading:  AONL Nurse Leader Fellowships Nurse Executive Competencies  Nurse Manager Competencies  The full transcript for this episode can be found here: www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/crystal-lawson

How COVID-19 has made simulation more relevant than ever

As the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the country and forced many nursing schools to pivot to online learning, the use of simulation in nursing curriculum has skyrocketed. And no one is more passionate about and more of an expert on simulation than our guest for this episode, KT Waxman.  KT is an Associate Professor and the Director of the Executive Leadership DNP Program at the University of San Francisco and the immediate past president of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. She’s been working in the field of simulation for 15 years and has seen her work take on more relevance than ever over the last several months.  Dan and KT and I discuss the shift to VR and screen-based learning in both schools and hospitals, how she’s focused on helping nurses achieve the outcomes of their coursework while relying heavily on simulation and how simulation can be used in some lesser known scenarios, like leadership development.  Links to recommended reading:  The California Simulation Alliance Position Statement on Use of Virtual Simulation during the Pandemic California Assembly Bill 2288: Nursing programs: state of emergency Health Care Finance for Nurse Executives Nursing Administration Quarterly  The full transcript for this episode can be found here: www.trustedhealth.com/the-handoff-podcast/kt-waxman
