Abstract:
Retaining New Graduates by Developing Subspecialty Practice on a General Medical Unit
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:deRuiter, Hans Peter
P.I. Institution Name:Mayo Clinic
Newly graduated students frequently choose general medical units as their initial place of employment. Having medical experience is considered a good foundation to apply for an ICU or ER position. A 23 bed medical unit chose to develop nursing subspecialties on its unit to offer new staff more opportunities and a greater subspecialty identity. Subspecialties include: Diabetes Nursing, Nutrition - Support Nursing and Obesity nursing. Nurses receive education in these specialty areas and are then utilized as resources by all staff in this 1400 bed hospital. Nurses also have the opportunity to rotate through ambulatory areas in their sub-specialties. The staff turnover amongst new graduates has dramatically decreased and a greater number of nurses are choosing to make medical nursing their career choice. This program was inspired by Benner's Novice to Expert model. Objectives: After reading this poster the participant will be able to: (1) Describe the impact on staff retention after developing a sub specialty. (2) Describe the Sub-specialty program. (3) Describe how Benner’s model was brought into practice on a medical nursing unit.
