Implementation of the Evidence-Based Nurse Internship Program
Abstract:
Implementation of the Evidence-Based Nurse Internship Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2009
Author:Hanlon, Gail, MSN
P.I. Institution Name:Southwestern Vermont Medical Center
Title:Clinical Education Specialist
[Evidence-based Practice Session Symposium] Purpose: To implement a state-wide nurse internship program. Methods: Collaboration of hospital administrators, nurse managers, clinical educators, preceptors and new nurses.  The new nurses were not counted as employees for the 10 weeks of the internship. During this time, they worked with their preceptor to develop the skills needed for success.  They were paid by the health care organization. The health care organization was paid $2,000 per intern. Results: Preceptor workshops developed preceptors who were capable of implementing the Internship.  The preceptors are taught how to teach, how to evaluate the development of skills by the new nurse, and how to discuss strengths and weaknesses with the interns in a manner designed to motivate them to do better. The site coordinators, are the primary contact people for the project. They are usually clinical educators who have a state-wide association and are used to working together. Conclusion:  To date over 600 nurses have participated in the Internship with only 5% leaving their position within one year of hire.
