Introduction: Participatory Action Research is used to explore and describe a model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing. Continuous collaboration exists with participants in a hospital context to ensure that the aim of the study is reached. This continuous collaboration allows for mutual understanding, consensus, and democratic decision-making. Through participatory action research it is ensured that the model is practice related and of value to the nursing practice. Participants are involved in all the phases of the study. Objective: The aim of the research is to describe model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing. Three objectives were set: Explore and describe the needs and problems of nurses which should be included in a model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing, within a hospital context, Describe a model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing based on the findings of objective 1, and Implement, validate and refine a model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing This paper will describe how Participatory Action Research was used to develop the model, resulting in the positive implementation and results. Design: In order to develop the model an institutional case study was conducted, a Qualitative and Participatory Action Research Design was used. Sample: Objective 1. Data was generated through focus groups (n=20) and individual interviews (n=20). Theoretical sampling was done to determine the participants (n=300). The participants included doctors, nurses, nursing managers, medical and patients and all categories of nursing staff Objective 2. Goal directed selection of national and international literature Objective 3. Goal directed selection of 5 units of a large regional hospital to implement and refine model. Setting: Large regional hospital in Gauteng Province, South Africa (n=1113 bed hospital). Concept: Enrichment is viewed as building competence and self-confidence, in order to solve problems and make effective decisions to bring about change. Enrichment implies a positive affirmation of the feeling of being accepted, valued, loved, and to belong. Enrichment ensures positive motivation, excitement and commitment to strive for excellence to meet personal and professional goals. Method/ Measures: The Model was implemented in a large regional hospital. Findings: A model for an enrichment programme for excellence in nursing is described. Conclusions: The use of this participatory research may be used to develop other models to bring about change in health care settings. The model as support system enables nurses to be placed back in a situation where they can fulfill their professional role and responsibilities in striving for excellence. Implications: Through the enrichment of nurses standards in nursing care may be addressed. The model may be used in other health care facilities as support system for institutional transformation.
