about this item

Managing the Intergenerational Nursing TeamK. Lynn Wieck, PhD, RN, FAANKimberly D. Moss, PhD, RN Managing the Intergenerational Nursing Staff is the nurse leader’s go-to source for understanding and managing nursing teams that may include baby boomer, Generation X, and millennial members. You will find everything you need to know about the motivations, perspectives, and values of your diverse staff. The lively writing duo of a baby boomer and a millennial nurse provides an engaging resource packed with action plans, advice, and strategies for defusing intergenerational tension and improving communication and engagement. Chapters address dozens of generational values and priorities from each generation’s perspective, offering nurse leaders keen insight into all the people they manage, regardless of age. Each of the core chapters opens with a scenario as it would be interpreted by staff from theemerging workforce (Gen X and millennials) versus the aging workforce (baby boomers). This helpful case study context makes it easy to apply the advice presented to the real-life nursing environment. Benefits:
  • Action plans provide practical steps nurse leaders can take to improve team relations.
  • Quick references compare generational perspectives on pivotal chapter topics and summarize key management solutions to potential staff issues.
