About a perfect nurses team

  1. Hi all! I need your help to find more about meanings of nurse team. How is valued team nurses work here? I am just curios how you see a good team and a good nurse leader team and how a nurse become leader here. How you can build a really strong professional team? Tell me about your team, what you like at and what not, what means for you a good nurse leader and what you hate at a nurse leader. Where start the problems in a nurse team and how did you resolved? All of us whish to have a good team so may be we can help each other!

    My first opinion... with lack of communication, unflexible in thinking nurses, unfocused on team goal and inflated EGO nurses you can't have a team.

    Let me know about your perfect team !

    A perfect team at the workplace would entail coworkers who can handle problems among themselves, without running to management every day. Perfect teams have nurses who do not tattle or snitch on other nurses incessantly for petty issues. Perfect teams have people who work cohesively with each other, and can leave their personal problems at home. A perfect team is comprised of people who do not insult others for their perceived 'lack of educational attainment.'

    I can go on and on, but I would become short of breath. . .

    I like to think of it as a "crew" as in a pirate crew-just makes me smile. "Team" makes me think we wear numbered jerseys like football teams.
    When a group of experienced nurses work together for a long time and get along is a good group of nurses to work with. The weekend CCU at my hospital is like that. Most of those nurses have been there 10+ years. If you float up there, and your patient codes, plenty of help is on the way.
    A bad team? Look for a hostile environment, the place where a few burnt-out senior nurses rule a patchwork of agency, floating, and unsupported new grads. There are always jobs available there it seems, maybe even a sign on bonus.

    A team is a group of workers who are working towards the same goal. In nursing that should be caring for both patients and employees. Making sure your brothers and sisters in nursing are not stressed due to anything that could not be controlled. A simple gester of caring is sometimes all that is needed.
