The Development of the Evidence-Based Nurse Internship Program
Abstract:
The Development of the Evidence-Based Nurse Internship Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2009
Author:Boyer, Susan A.
P.I. Institution Name:Mt. Ascutney Hospital
Title:Project Coordinator, Nermont Nurse Internship
[Evidence-based Practice Session Symposium] Purpose: To address the growing deficit of nurses, with projections anticipating a supply of 36% fewer than needed by 2020.  Vermont is a small, rural state that does not reimburse nurses as well as some of the larger neighboring states.  While recruitment endeavors were ongoing over the course of the project, the nurse leaders targeted retention for the initial collaborative effort. Methods: data collection, literature search, consults and queries to experts on various specialties, Dreyfus model of "skills Acquisition", Benner's novice to expert theory.  It also utilizes teaching/learning, critical thinking, group dynamics, communication, leadership, team building, training and development theories and best practice models.   The workgroup that designed the framework included representatives from academia, regulation and practice settings across the continuum of care. Results: The foundational requirements of the Vermont Nurse Practice Act, Standards for Practice for specialty services and various Accreditation organizations were incorporated within the program structure. Its major components and concepts include Preceptor delivery - with a focus on preceptor development and support; clearly defined expectations - performance outcomes based on Lenburg's Competency Outcomes Performance Assessment (COPA)model; and Evidence-based - data collection, evaluation, and foundational protocols.  The core work of the internship was developing competencies and a manner to assess them. Benner's novice to expert designations structured the process. All practice areas contributed specific subskills for each of Lenburg's eight core competencies. Conclusion: The development phase resulted in a universal competency tool that would be used in nearly all direct care settings.
