Abstract:
PURPOSE: The intent of this creative solution was to integrate clinical skills with attained knowledge to formulate safe, bedside practice. Novice ICU nurses who were enrolled in AACN's ECCO were scheduled for simulation days that would incorporate the knowledge they were gaining with case study scenarios. These ECCO case study simulations were developed to reinforce the content in the modules and assess and to evaluate and strengthen the participant's acquisition of critical care knowledge clinical skills. DESCRIPTION: The critical care program coordinator and several unit-based advanced practice nurses (APNs) met to discuss the possibility of enrolling more learners into the ECCO program. It was a general consensus that this program offered many long-term benefits to the learner and organization, including a mechanism to bridge the gap between classroom and computer-based learning. One idea was to combine the ECCO modules with simulations that would reinforce the modules. Each APN met with their novice nurses to review this computer-based critical care course. A calendar was developed that displayed the order in which each nurse would complete each module. The APNs developed case study simulations that reinforced the moduleÆs content and scheduled time for the nurses to demonstrate their acquisition of this new knowledge through these simulations. During the simulations, the nurses demonstrated skills related to management of a respiratory and cardiac arrest, assisting the physician and advocating for the patient during the placement of a central catheter and the insertion and maintenance of a pulmonary artery catheter. Effective communication, critical thinking, and leadership skills were also evaluated in these simulations. EVALUATION/OUTCOMES: Two adult ICUs had a total of 6 nurses who were enrolled and completed the ECCO program. These nurses also attended 2 simulations, each facilitated by an APN. All nurses successfully completed their modules, as noted by the ECCO reports. In addition, all nurses successfully completed the simulations, as noted by initial competencies. Upon completion of their formal orientation, the nurses evaluated the simulations as "excellent." Ongoing assessment and revision of the integration of the ECCO modules with simulations continues. Additional simulations and individualizing the ECCO program are being considered.
