Abstract:
PURPOSE: In the last two years, the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of Children's Mercy hospital has implemented various interventions aimed at increasing the percentage of bedside nurses who obtain & maintain certification. The program has been very effective in achieving success with strong involvement at the nurse, management, and hospital levels. Description: This is a PICU nurse led study group. Interest is generated by emailing those who have eligibility to take the exam. After the members of the study group are identified, they meet to discuss the study group model. During this first meeting several aspects are discussed, one being, what study aids are required. This currently consists of The Pediatric Critical Care Core Curriculum as a primary source in regards to text. Each member is given the application paperwork & assistance is provided in filling out the paperwork. They are encouraged to turn in the paperwork during this first meeting but it is not mandatory. The study group meets weekly and covers the material using a systems approach, i.e. pulmonary, cardiovascular, etc.. The management level of involvement includes the Nurse Manager who prior, as a staff nurse initiated the current model. She attends the study groups as a "guest speaker" to reinforce learning points. She also meets one-on-one with each nurse prior to taking the test. Providing a private two hour tutorial. Unit & hospital level recognition is done a variety of ways throughout the year. The hospital also pays for the first exam & pays an hourly differential for those who have obtained & maintain their CCRN. EVALUATION: The outcomes are based on previous year's data. Prior to the initiation of our Study Group model the average number of those attempting to take the exam was four. Over the last two years the average number is 10. Another outcome, although it should be noted past data is unknown, is the pass rate. Everyone during the past two years, using this model has passed. Currently there is a 100% pass rate. The percentage of CCRN nurses has increased from 25-30% of staff to 40%. The model is frequently reevaluated and updated as improved methods are discovered. Due to the success of this model it has been implemented as a recruitment tool during the interview & hiring process of new nurses.
