    Four of our very own nursing faculty and BSN alumnus were recently published in the Nursing Administration Quarterly publication. Nursing faculty, Drs. Tyczkowski, Vandenhouten, Reilly, and Kubsch along with Dr. Bansal from the College of Business and BSN alumnus Raelynn Jakkola conducted research on Emotional intelligence (EI) and nursing leadership styles among nurse managers.

    Their research found that less than 12.5% of nurses aspire to leadership roles, noting lack of support and stress as major factors in their decision not to pursue this area of practice. Psychological resiliency, described as the ability to properly adapt to stress and adversity, is key to successful nurse managers. Emotional intelligence (EI) is a related concept to resiliency and is another noteworthy predictor of leadership and management success.

    Their study was undertaken to determine the level of and relationship between EI and leadership style of nurse managers employed in Wisconsin and Illinois facilities. A descriptive, exploratory study design was utilized, with a convenience sample of nurse managers working in 6 large Midwestern health systems. Nurse managers were invited to participate in the study by their employer, completing the online consent form and the demographic, Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) Form 5X and the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-I 2.0) surveys. Statistically significant positive relationships were noted between EI and transformational leadership and the outcomes of leadership (extra effort, effectiveness, and satisfaction). No statistically significant relationships were noted between EI and transactional or laissez-faire leadership styles.

    The NurScope™ app is described on the NANDA-I site as the key to fully grasping nursing diagnosis and accurately applying diagnoses in clinical scenarios. Their ongoing research project conducted between NANDA-I and UW-Green Bay will continue to improve the decision support information available within the tool, drawing from research on diagnoses conducted worldwide. Users can explore nursing diagnoses via three different pathways—by domain, diagnostic focus, and nursing diagnosis label. NurScope™ enables users to identify priority nursing diagnoses by following three easy steps:

    •Select the e-tool appropriate diagnostic indicators, based on nursing assessment and other patient data.
    •When presented with a list of potential diagnoses, review the details of each to refine, validate and prioritize the most accurate diagnosis(es).
    •Document your decisions by emailing a summary of your work to your professor.

    NurScope™ is a new interactive e-tool and new way of thinking about nursing diagnosis. Available now on the Apple App store and Google play!
