Identifying and Developing Staff Potential: A Web-Based Project
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003

P.I. Institution Name:Department of Veterans Affairs - WBJ Dorn Medical Center
Title:Nurse Manager
In 1996, Kenneth W. Kizer, M.D., M.P.H. published a document articulating the Veterans Health Administration’s new vision. His “Prescription for Change” outlined specific goals, objectives, and action items which would transform the veterans health care system. His five organizational goals included: 1. Providing excellence in health care value; 2. Providing excellence in service as defined by customers; 3. Providing excellence in education and research; 4. Becoming and organization characterized by exceptional accountability; 5. Being an employer of choice. Central to his organizational goals was facilitating a work force dedicated to meeting these objectives. A task force was formed to review employment practices and training programs. The group was charged with creating programs that would be effective in the changed cultural and organizational healthcare system. As a result, the “High Performance Development Model” was established to identify and develop future leaders as well as to expand the development of the VHA’s entire workforce. The model is centered on the mission of providing healthcare for veterans. It aligns the VHA around a set of eight core competencies, which would be used to develop training, select new employees and serve as a basis for promotion decisions. To encourage the use of this model, the WBJ Dorn VA Medical Center challenged it’s managers to develop creative presentations demonstrating the application of the core competencies at the unit level. Nursing staff in the Urgent Care setting accepted the challenge and developed a web-page which graphically described the utilization of these principles. The exercise accomplished several goals including: · Encouraging staff to incorporate these competencies into their daily practice; · Publishing the skills and talents of the nursing staff in a forum that could be viewed nationwide; · Advancing the knowledge skills of the nursing staff by using a technology medium outside of their usual aptitude.
