hospital nursing, planning
Planning is identified as a key activity of hospital management. Planning processes are examined for 75 hospitals in the national Strengthening Hospital Nursing Program (SHNP). The nature of the planning process is presented with a focus on professional participation in planning, differences between single and networked hospitals, and the development of planning teams. The importance of certain elements for planning teams is considered. Part 2 (June 1992 issue) will examine the planning characteristics between Phase 2 selected and nonselected hospitals. Part 3 will explore the differences among professional disciplines in planning.
