Description/Overview: System clarity exists when the daily routines, practices, and protocols are in alignment with both caring and professional practice principles. Nurses prepared as professionals and who accept responsibility for assessing, planning and overseeing, evaluating and adapting patient care would experience the practical support of consistent schedules and assignments. The reduction in system fragmentation would enhance their ability to make a positive impact on patient outcomes. When the whole system is clearly redesigned to support person-centric care, and care of colleagues and self, the prospects for professional practice environments are optimized.
Learner Objective #1: Delineate the role Clarity of Self, Clarity of Role, and Clarity of System relate to job satisfaction.
Learner Objective #2: Describe how two different large systems manage data within a theoretical framework.
