Ethical Leadership and Social Media

You are the nursing manager for nurses & the nurse practitioners of an internal medicine group. You have been in this role for approximately 8 months, and overall are enjoying it. The hours have provided an adequate work/balance for your family. You are also a nurse practitioner, seeing patients 1 day a week, with the rest of your time dedicated to adminstrative duties. You work with the medical director of the practice as well as the CNO & the APP director (advanced practice provider), and overall they have served as mentors for you in this role.

Today, you are meeting with these individuals to review the organization's employee survey on work satisfaction. The survey was sent to employees with directions, to be truthful & honest, as results would be anonymous. However, as the CNO & APP director begin discussing the result findings of the survey when the director comments, "oh, that comment was from NP Jane, she's always complaining." or "oh, wow, I didn't know Joan was unhappy, she's such a good nurse."  As the discussion continues, it is clear that results were not anonymous and they are ignoring some employee comments, as being unworthy.

  • Written response;
    • What are the ramifications (both positive & negative) of the leader's behavior?
