We know nurse leaders are busy. And that the requests on your time are never-ending. So we wondered: do you have a hard time saying no?

Eighty percent of respondents to our quiz on www.StrategiesForNurseManagers.com say they know how to say no and they feel no guilt. Fourteen percent of respondents say they have found a nice way to decline, such as "I would be glad to help at another time, but I must decline right now."

Just 6% of respondents say they have a hard time saying no, responding "I never say no, even though I'm so busy that I'm overwhelmed."

How do you feel? Take our survey to let us know. And e-mail Rebecca Hendren at rhendren@hcpro.com if you have strategies to share for how to successfully say no.
