Part 1:  Restructuring in depth

You are the supervisor at a home health agency. There are 22 RNs in your span of control. In a meeting today, John Dao, the CNO, tells you that your span of control needs adjustment to be effective. Therefore, the CNO has decided to flatten the organization an decentralize the department. To accomplish this, he plans to designate three of your staff as shift coordinators. These shift coordinators will schedule patient visits for all the staff on their shift and be accountable for the staff that they supervisor. The CNO believes that this restructuring will give you more time for implementing a continuous quality improvement program and promoting staff development.
Although you are glad to have the opportunity to begin these new projects, you are somewhat unclear about the role expectations of the new shift coordinators and how this will change your job description. In fact,you worry tha this is just a precursor to the elimination of your position. Will these shift coordinators report to you? If so, will you ave direct line authority or staff authority? Who should be responsible for evaluating the performance of he staff nurses now? Who will handle employee disciplinary problems? How involved should the shift coordinators be in strategic planning or determining next year’s budget? What types of management training will be needed by the shift coordinators to prepare for their new role? Are you the most appropriate person to train them?
There is a great potential for conflict here
1. Make a list of 10 questions that you would want to ask the CNO at your next meeting to clarify role expectations. 
2. Discuss tools and skills that you have learning that could make this role change less traumatic for all involved.

Part 2: Power, politics, and Collective Bargaining on Organizational Climate

List and support your reasons for or against striking.

You are a staff nurse in the ICU in one of your city’s two hospitals. You have worked at this hospital for 5 years and transferred to the ICU 2 years ago. You love nursing but are sometimes frustrated in your job due to a short supply of nurses, excessive overtime demands, and the stress of working with such critically ill patients.

The hospital has a closed shop, so union dues are deducted from your pay even though you are not actively involved in the union. The present union contract is up for renegotiation, and union and management have been unable to agree on many issues. When management made its last offer, the new contract was rejected by the nurses. Now that the old contract has expired, nurses are free to strike if they vote to do so. 

You had voted for accepting the management offer; you have two children to support, and it would be devastating to be without work for a long time. Last night, the nurses voted on whether to return to the bargaining table and try to renegotiate with management or to go out on strike. Again, you voted for no strike. You have just heard from your friend that the strike vote won. Now, you must decide if you are going to support your striking colleagues or cross the picket line and return to work tomorrow. Your friends are pressuring you to support their cause. You know that the union will provide some financial compensation during the strike but believe that it will not be adequate for you to support yourself and your children. Yo agree with union assertions that the organization has overworked and underpaid you and that it has been generally unresponsive to nursing needs. On the other hand, you believe that your first obligation is your children.

2. Describe how you arrived at your decision.
