I bacame a nurse manager a few months ago to a unit that was in pretty bad shape with morale and turnover. Day shift seems to be in much better shape and like to attribute that to my presence and constant encouragement and recognition. They work great together. They work hard and I hear less and less complaints from the group. Then night shift comes in. The entire hospital has a negative attitude at night. Some nurses on the unit complain about almost everything. What are some ways you engage night shift staff and improve morale at night shift when it is tough to be there with the staff? I feel like I am failing when I hear the night shift complaining about everything. Any suggestions or ideas are appreciated.
