“Bounded interactive context as well as individual’s proximal context defines nurses in a working environment through their attributions and characteristics. In this context, nurses build proper working relationships with fellow nurses, physicians and supervisors”, (Bae et al, 2010)
Article summary
The article gives a comprehensive report about the relationship that exists between workers and supervisors at individual and group levels with nurses who intend to leave their units. The authors carried out a study through administration of questionnaires to measure the extent of leader-worker exchange and collaboration of nurse-physician analysis. The analysis took place at group level while turnover intention and effective commitment analyzed at individual level. The study took place in five Italian hospitals.
The outcome of the study showed that when effective commitment occurs at individual level, then there is a complete mediation of relationship. The relationship exists between leader-member commutation at nursing turnover intention and group level.
In addition, the article also revealed that there is great significance in cross-level interaction. Nurses who had high levels of individual effective commitment at individual level revealed reduced level of turnover intention. Increased collaboration at group level makes the relationship stronger between nurse and physician.
The article outlines need for organizations to apply management practices leading to promotion of both nurse-physician relationships and high quality nurse supervisor. Furthermore, to retain workforce, the article maintains that organizations should promote individual commitment as well as quality relationship between that exists among staff members.
Application in future practice
The information I have learnt from this article will be of great significance for me as a nurse in my future practice. For instance, I will constantly use effective interaction with my colleagues at the workplace environment for quality working relationships. A hospital unit is an environment where nurses work and interact on daily basis. I, being a nurse who will work in the nursing industry, must therefore apply interactive characteristics and attributes with supervisors and physicians.
I will also try to minimize rate of turnover to promote team cohesion as well as quality care because excessive turnover compromises the two. In addition, increased turnover also creates discrepancy between my organization and me as an employee.
Furthermore, I will always make great effort to maintain good exchange relationships to increase collaboration amongst us as the healthcare staff. Consequently, good exchange relationships will enhance my commitment to the organization.
