Nursing sabbatical in the acute care hospital setting: a cost-benefit analysis.

J Nurs Adm 2012 Jun;42(6):340-4

Business, industry, and academia have successfully implemented professional sabbaticals to retain and revitalize valuable employees; however, the use is infrequent among acute care hospitals. This article expands upon the synthesis of evidence supporting nursing sabbaticals and suggests this option as a fiscally sound approach for nurses practicing in the acute care hospital setting.

Br J Nurs 2000 Apr 13-26;9(7):440-4

Coventry University, School of Health and Social Sciences.

The clinical credibility and clinical competence of nurse lecturers have presented interesting debate for some years in nursing. While some argue that being clinically competent is an unavoidable necessity for nurse lecturers, others are either ambivalent or believe that they do not have to be clinically competent, being clinically credible should suffice. This article distinguishes between the two terms and presents an analysis of how the latter can be developed through the use of paid educational leave. Read More
