Equally important with having a goal and direction in an institution like a hospital is how the people in this institution work together to achieve this. This “togetherness” is aptly expressed in the concept of synergy. This operationalizes what Collins (2001) meant with “right people in the right bus” (Collins, 2001).
Synergy is defined as “the interaction of elements that when combined produce a total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements” (Retrieved from www.dictionary.reference. com/ browse/synergy on February 27, 2018). To achieve this synergy among all stakeholders of educational institutions, there should be a common ground, in which they align themselves with the institutional vision and mission. Whatever the context, the point is the same: If an organization wants to move forward, it needs to develop and understand an agreed on purpose, in educational institutions—the vision, mission, goals and core values. Having strong vision and mission statements can help stakeholders in school reach such a common understanding (Gabriel and Farmer, 2009).
This study aims to produce an output that could help in operations planning in the clinical setting. This output determines the extent of synergy among staff nurses with institutional purpose as reflected in their understanding of the institution’s vision, mission, goals, and core values in the order of thinking skills of the Bloom’s taxonomy. Through this descriptive, comparative, correlational research, this purpose may be achieved.
