In this new position, Caryl is responsible for the Organizational Effectiveness Department, also called the Research Pod. The focus of this department is to facilitate strategic work and improve the organization's effectiveness. “We complete environmental scanning, target data analysis on a variety of data that we gather and also improve communication amongst and between departments. I have 9 direct reports. In addition to this work, this department also leads and manages the AACN CSI Academy, which is a leadership program targeted to direct care nurses helping them improve and sustain patient and fiscal outcomes in their workplace. We currently have 6 cohorts in this program, Indianapolis, Raleigh/Durham, Boston, Austin, Phila-delphia and New York. We have completed the first 3 and I was honored to have served as the lead faculty for the Raleigh/Durham area. This is an exciting new program and I encourage all to go to the AACN website and check out the In-novation Database which contains all the projects to date. Go under "education" then AACN CSI Academy.” -Goodyear Bruch
