[Evidence-based Presentation] While the healthcare environment races to keep up with professional and regulatory practice standards, the scope of the nursing profession broadens mandating a call for action to achieve superior patient outcomes. To rise above these challenges, an urban hospital implemented a professional practice model and curriculum that addressed performance improvement, evidence-based practice, professional development, resource management, communication and meeting management. A two day class including contact hours provided nurses the time, tools and resources to develop these new skills. One goal of this practice model was for staff nurses to develop an evidence-based performance improvement project within three months of attending class and present their findings to other staff nurses in a two day Magnet-Mentor Fair.áProjects stemmed from opportunities identified by staff nurses through individual nursing unit Dashboard outcomes. The effectiveness of this educational strategy was evaluated by comparing annual RN performance appraisal ratings; unit-specific improvement in targeted patient outcomes is currently under review. Staff nurse responses to this program have been overwhelmingly positive.áThe transformation of these nurses to assume a leadership role in driving clinical quality and evidence-based practice was evident in the 2005 versus 2004 annual RN performance appraisal ratings, which statistically improved in several key criteria, e.g., on a six point scale with three meeting basic expectations and four being above average, clinical practice improvement and research improved from 3.56 to 3.96, image and communication improved from 4.43 to 4.50, nurse as teacher improved from 4.06 to 4.23 and patient safety improved from 4.55 to 4.63.When nurses are fully supported in developing new skills to achieve competent practice congruent with the present demands, they become leaders at the bedside effecting positive change.
