The University of Phoenix College of Health Professions recently released the results of an online survey that garnered information about the increasing role of registered nurses and hospital administrators, as well as their views of the future of their professions.
 
“How we care for patients is as dynamic of a process as the individuals themselves,” University of Phoenix College of Health Professions Executive Dean Doris Savron said. “Health care staff, including registered nurses and administrative staff, are the lifeblood of the health care system. As they are increasingly tasked with more responsibility, it is essential that they are prepared to meet the demands of patient care and management to ensure quality care.”
 
According to the survey, 81 percent of registered nurses and 78 percent of administration staff feel that patient care is increasingly being shifted into their hands, including a larger responsibility for patients’ emotional well-being, 37 percent and 31 percent, respectively, and an increase in their role in overall patient care planning, 49 percent and 35 percent, respectively. Both groups also felt that patients should be very concerned about the quality of care provided.
 
“Innovative solutions like nurses’ and health care administrators’ use of technology and informatics are essential to preparing tomorrow’s health care leaders, and can help ensure better patient outcomes,” Savron said. “University of Phoenix has designed programs to prepare nurses and health care administrators to stay on the pulse of the rapidly-evolving health care industry, including offering curriculum in timely areas of need like informatics, gerontology, and sustainability management.”
