2018 Nursing Annual Report | 3

ACCOMPLISHMENTS

In Fiscal Year 2018 for nursing quality
measures, we achieved several meaningful
successes: 83% of inpatient units
outperformed the National Database for
Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) top
25th percentile benchmark for restraint
measures; 75% of units outperformed the

STAFF AWARDS

The 2010 Institute of Medicine report on the
future of nursing recommended that by 2020,
80% of nurses should be prepared with a
Baccalaureate degree in nursing as evidence
supports a positive relationship between
higher levels of nursing education and better
patient outcomes. We continue to focus on
this goal of a high percentage of clinical
RNs with BSN or higher degrees in Nursing
with a rate of 74% this year, higher than
the 73% for national average for Magnet®
designated hospitals and significantly higher

than the national average for all hospitals of
54%. Similarly, we continue to have a high
percentage of clinical RNs who have achieved
certification in their specialty area. UNCH
now has more than 44% of RN staff who
are certified, again higher than the national
average for Magnet® designated hospitals of
36%. The Nursing Professional Development
Council and Certification Committee have
worked diligently to assist in meeting or
exceeding these goals.

STAFF PROFILES

and Staffing, Interprofessional Relationships,
Leadership Access and Responsiveness,
Professional Development and RN to RN
Teamwork and Collaboration. As the largest
segment of the health care workforce,
engaged nurses are central to effective,
efficient, caregiving teams.

FEATURE

I am always amazed at the passion and dedication that the
nursing team demonstrates to each patient and to each other.
