Nursing Organization Assessment

Organizational Chart Assessment

Does the image in your mind match with one (or more) of the organizational structures discussed in this week’s Learning Resources? Why or why not?  For anyone working in a health care setting, looking at the organizational chart can provide useful information about the context that affects daily practice as well as the achievement of longer term goals. For managers, understanding the structure and dynamics portrayed in such a chart—as well as those that may be missing—is especially important.  For this Discussion, you analyze an organizational chart from the point of view of nursing management.
