Abstract

Executive SummaryNurse-physician relationships have progressed markedly, but cultural evolution seems to occur one hospital at a time.Nurse-physician relationships only become true partnerships if nurses can demonstrate their unique contribution to care and are positioned as intellectual peers.With the Magnet and safety evidence at hand, the nurse executive has powerful tools to gain the attention of the board, executive team, and medical staff.Striving for better nurse-physician relationships is advocating for a healthy work environment for all caregivers and ultimately a better experience and outcomes for patients.
