In this episode, Dr. Raso and I talk about her latest research looking at authentic leadership, healthy work environment, team-member well-being, and nurse retention. In it, she uncovered a remarkable resilience of nurse leaders to continue leading with authenticity and humanity, even as the work environment for nurses has diminished. We talk about the need to support nurse leaders with the same process and practice improvement, as well as well-being support that frontline nurses need and deserve. Dr. Raso lays out a hope-filled vision for a future in which the structures of support for nurses and nurse leaders emerge from the challenges of the pandemic stronger and more human-centered than ever.
