JOB SUMMARY

The Registered Nurse (RN) Charge is a licensed professional who uses the BSWH nursing professional practice model to coordinate patient care delivery by the health care team. In the capacity of Charge Nurse, works in the best interests of BSWH and accepts increased responsibility to support and carry out BSWHs mission and goals. Using the nursing process, the RN assesses the patient, identifies nursing diagnoses based on responses to health problems, develops and implements an individualized plan of care, and evaluates the patient's response. The RN promotes safe passage for their patients by using knowledge of patient needs and the healthcare environment to assist patients to transition through the healthcare encounter without any preventable complications or delays. The RN delegates interventions to health care personnel based on the Texas Nursing Practice Act, each patient's condition and the competencies of the employee. The Charge Nurse holds nurses accountable for providing appropriate care including, where appropriate, taking disciplinary or other corrective action with support from the designated manager.

Clinical Inquiry: Systematically evaluates the quality and effectiveness of nursing practice, including, but not limited to, nursing sensitive indicators. Supports evidence-based practice changes through research utilization and experiential learning. Participates in quality/performance improvement initiatives. Words and actions are congruent and holds others accountable for the same.

Advocacy and Moral Agency: Preserves and protects the confidentiality, autonomy, dignity and rights of patient and family and represents their concerns. Creates an individualized plan that accurately reflects patient and family values and goals. Identifies and helps resolve ethical and clinical concerns.

Facilitation of Learning: Facilitates learning for patients and families, nursing staff, other members of the health care team and community; integrating appropriate education throughout the continuum of care to help them participate and/or make informed decisions about their health care and treatments, including health promotion and disease prevention.

Open and sensitive to all team members' unique contributions. Delegates tasks and care to appropriate staff and ensures timely follow-up. Effectively implements changes in the department.

Systems Thinking: Uses strategies and available resources for problem-solving for patients, family and staff. Recognizes that resources are limited and considers factors related to safety, effectiveness and efficiency in planning and delivering patient care.

Professionalism: Improves nursing practice and the work environment through participating in shared governance and decision-making processes and meaningfully recognizing the contributions of others. Participates in the staffing process from education and planning to evaluation. Identifies personal goals and commits to ongoing professional growth through continuing education, networking with professional colleagues, membership and involvement in professional nursing organizations, self-study, professional reading, certification and seeking advanced degrees.
