Frontline nurses are foundational to any organizational goal concerning patient care. In addition, healthcare delivery reform has supported the formalization of specific goals that hospitals must advance to stay financially viable and to deliver high-quality care. As a result, goals for frontline staff are continuously evolving. Frontline nurses must demonstrate a commitment not only to delivering excellent patient care but also to advancing larger institutional performance. The authors discuss a framework for nurse executives to help organizations achieve enhanced nurse investment in organizational goals.
