  • Description
    "The research focuses on how leadership in public hospitals is structured at a strategic level. The preliminary summary of findings of this phase of the research show that reporting lines between directors of nursing (DON) and the chief executive officer (CEO) are not always direct, and organizational charts and nursing structures are not readily aligned. Clear financial or budget holding reporting lines by nursing leadership are not easily identified, or are professional and operational accountability lines clearly defined." (excerpt from abstract)
