Abstract:
Philanthropy to support nursing professional development, recruitment and retention
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Hitchings, Kim, MSN
P.I. Institution Name:Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network
Health care institution operational dollars for staff professional development, recruitment and retention strategies are rapidly decreasing. In this era of a nationwide nursing shortage and ever expanding opportunities for nurses beyond the acute care setting, hospitals and other health care agencies must consider these aforementioned needs and be creative in not only defining various strategies to meet these needs, but in obtaining the funding resources to support the same. At Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network (LVHHN), an 820 bed tertiary system in Allentown, Pennsylvania, philanthropy has provided millions of dollars over the past 15 years to recognize and promote excellence in nursing practice, nursing education and nursing research, and to enhance the image of nursing. Activities to support these goals include awards to recognize nursing excellence and distinct achievements; seminars and educational programs; scholarship funds to support nursing education; fellowships for nursing research; and funding for special projects, including but not limited to career awareness, community outreach and legislative activities. This poster will illustrate strategies which institutions can adopt to design and develop a philanthropic program to support nursing initiatives, as well as examples of successful efforts funded by philanthropy which have promoted professional development and thus retention of LVHHN nursing staff.
