Abstract:
PURPOSE: When our organization began a discussion around taking a Magnet journey it became apparent that our nurses needed ways to translate Magnet concepts to the daily practice of nursing. Many nurses do not consider the uniqueness of what we contribute to our patientsÆ care. In considering how to generate excitement in the uniqueness of nursing and engage bedside nurses in the process, nursing grand rounds (NGR) surfaced as a strategy. DESCRIPTION: The development of NGR at our institution grew out of a desire to engage bedside critical care nurses in presenting interesting or complicated cases that rejuvenated their clinical practice in some manner. The presentation focuses on identifying evidence-based practice and methods to improve patient outcomes through nursing care. The NGR presentations are delivered in a case study format highlighting the background of the patient, pathophysiology of the disease process or diagnosis, nursing care measures used, and challenges identified. With support from the patient care administration team, bedside staff nurses are the target for presenting the cases. The critical care clinical nurse specialists (CNSs) assisted with the mentoring of bedside caregivers and the development for the first 6 NGR. As this occurred, interest was peaking throughout the institution to share patientsÆ stories in other divisions. Currently, each NGR is a multiunit effort. Nurses now approach the CNSs with potential cases and volunteer to present. A contact education hour is requested, lunch is provided at each NGR with vendor support, and raffle prizes awarded after the presentation. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES:Our institution has seen high attendance levels from both nursing and other health care professionals. Although the majority of our NGR presenters are novice speakers, our presentations have been rated exceptionally high. Each presentation has received a basic evaluation from the individual attendees to determine if objectives were met and to rate the presenters on a Likert scale (4 = excellent, 1 = poor). NGR at TTH was initially established to assist with the Magnet journey and these presentations have met or exceeded our goals.
