Nurses of Influence
Kileen Beverly Tucker Scott
Written in English
In the increasingly commercial world of health care delivery, senior nurse administrators are challenged to promote the patient care agenda and endorse the often conflicting corporate mandate of health care organizations in which they work. For many, their position in the patriarchal administrative hierarchy of these organizations depends upon adopting the dominant organizational culture. However, there are some who resist abandoning a deeply rooted nursing identity. They successfully create a caring counter-culture within the organization. From this location, these nurses, who I refer to as "Nurses of Influence", advance the patient care agenda and also champion the caring contribution of nursing within that agenda.Throughout my study, I became more conscious of the history of exclusionary practices that compromise the true application of holistic caring within the nursing discipline itself. As a result, my research took a turn toward critical feminism and incorporated a commentary on the inclusionary ethno-racial mentoring practices of Nurses of Influence that seek to nurture future nursing leaders of diverse ethnicity and racial backgrounds.The purpose of this study was to explore the situated lived experiences of a small sample of Nurses of Influence using qualitative methods to analyze how they weave nursing"s caring culture into their administrative practice. My research suggests that they navigate oppressive androcentric organizational power structures creating what I call a feminist counter-culture that embodies nursing"s caring perspective. From early in their careers, they promote connectiveness, reciprocal respect, and empowerment of self and others. They develop inclusive structures, such as mentoring networks, that represent nursing"s holistic philosophy as well as promote the use of power amongst their nursing colleagues. Key informants in my study attribute Nurses of Influence with a significant degree of credibility grounded in their many years of clinical practice and the attainment of advanced theoretical nursing knowledge. This credibility facilitates the active participation of Nurses of Influence in various political arenas in order to cultivate nursing"s caring counter-culture that is so often devalued by the dominant health care system.

It has been noted in many nursing forums that with more than million professionally active registered nurses in the United States today,1 we should have more influence in health policy and organizational decision making.

Nursing, profession that assumes responsibility for the continuous care of the sick, the injured, the disabled, and the g is also responsible for encouraging the health of individuals, families, and communities in medical and community settings. Nurses are actively involved in health care research, management, policy deliberations, and patient advocacy. Nurses can play an important role in helping others in their communities understand how these factors influence health and in making community-level changes that would address these areas. From access to healthy foods to water quality to physical education requirements in schools, there are a multitude of factors that influence health that.
