180,000 nurses strong!!! Hoping to learn more from all of you about WHAT you think makes a "healthy work environment". Assisting a unit to implement AACN Healthy work environment initiatives, but first like to get a more global perspective in our profession of what that "looks, feels, like", Any suggestion, ideas or perspective appreciated. I practice nursing in a 450 bed medical center as a nurse manager for 90 direct report team members on a 37 bed cardiovascular surgical stepdown telemetry unit. One initiative I would like to implement is a "quiet or "down time" room for the team members to actually get away 15 to 30 minutes and get recharged. Do any of you have experience with this? Thanks for your feedback.
